Das entfesselte Geld
Bernisches Historisches Museum

The exhibition “Das entfesselte Geld. Die Geschichte einer Erfindung” (Money Unleashed: The Story of an Invention) takes visitors on a journey to the origins of money and invites essential debate about our current monetary system.

The core of the exhibition is an immersive spatial installation. It consists of two projections on the walls, a table projection and eight screens. The videos show rapid-fire images from the news, financial world, and pop culture. An audio backdrop accompanies this arresting, sensory, and almost overwhelming effect. The ambient sound was composed and mixed especially for this venue, and can be experienced in surround sound via five loudspeakers and a subwoofer. The videos on the screens can be triggered with pushbuttons, and language is selected via the slots for the headphones.

Tweaklab was responsible for the planning, programming and installation of this media installation and also created the sound design.
