Women.Rights
Landesmuseum Zürich

50 years after the beginning of women’s suffrage in Switzerland, the exhibition “Women.Rights | From the Enlightenment to the Present” sheds light on the long-running struggle for women’s rights in Switzerland. Prominent artefacts and testimonies from national and international collections are accompanied by informative digitally prepared explanations to delve into the depths of the multi-layered subject matter surrounding women’s rights.

A 70” touchscreen is synchronized with a video projection and portrays 50 female personalities from sports, science, art, economy, politics, and social affairs. When a portrait of a woman is activated on the touchscreen, information and images about the subject are immediately displayed in the video projection. The content can be accessed in four languages. In addition to the installation, Tweaklab implemented the entire programming of the touchscreen and created the animation which is projected in a loop during periods of inactivity.
Smaller and larger touchscreen stations offer further context with historical documents from television and with historical images. Most of the stations are outfitted with the practical Tweaklab handset, with which one can listen to the original sound of the cinematic reports. The installation as well as the programming of the content in four languages was done by Tweaklab.

Throughout the exhibition, listening islands, seating areas with iPads and handheld receivers, were strategically placed. Tweaklab produced the entire audio cont
