Total Space

In museums across the globe, elaborate stage sets and expansive installations are spellbinding visitors. Total Space provides an up-to-date overview of current developments and reflects on this trend.

Dive in, experience, participate! In museums across the globe, elaborate stage sets and expansive installations spellbind visitors. Today's exhibition halls are filled with light shows, slides and huge toadstools, all designed to meet the needs of the thrill-seeking society. Which new experiences do these playgrounds enable young and old to make and how do they change the museum experience? Total Space provides an up-to-date overview of current developments and reflects on this trend. Innovative installations, digital environments, and interactive stations devised by inter-national designers create a multi-layered world of experience that can be explored with all the senses. A lawn-fitted library invites visitors to explore the exhibition theme in greater depth.
