Power strategies and ideas of dominance from Charlemagne to Frederick Barbarossa shaped the destiny of Europe for five centuries. In the exhibition “The Emperors and the Pillars of their Power”, rarely seen exhibits and top-class loans have been brought together in an informative way for the public.
Tweaklab was entrusted with the media technical planning, programming and implementation of the digital content.
Particularly noteworthy is the synchronous interaction of the room sound and the audio tracks of the media stations within the exhibition halls. They flow indiscernibly into each other as soon as they are switched on, so that visitors can view the exhibits in a pleasant acoustic atmosphere.
The animation of the life-size stone statues of the Electoral Prince by means of sound and visual elements also has an astonishing effect. These subtle medial interventions required sensitivity and precision, especially in the media technical planning and implementation process.
The exhibition also features several informative monitor stations, some with German and English text inserts programmed in loops, and touch books for leafing through digital reproductions of extremely precious books.
