EL REINO DE LA SAL: 7000 YEARS OF HALLSTATT
On June 14th the travelling exhibition „El Reino de la Sal“ 7000 years Hallstatt, was opened at the archaeological museum MARQ in Alicante, Spain.
The exhibition shows the history and the importance of salt mining in Hallstatt, Austria.
On behalf of Museumspartner, Innsbruck we developed and realised the overall design, architecture and graphic design of this exhibition in co-operation with the Museum of Natural History Vienna, 7reasons and Qarante.
The exhibition architecture consists of six mobile rooms shaped like salt splinters – each featuring three sections: atmosphere, objects, science.
Hallstatt has to be regarded as the cradle of industrialisation in Europe featuring a high degree of perfection, efficiency and logistics so far unthought-of for the bronze and iron age.
The exhibition presents unique artefacts, modern scientific findings and interpretations as well as atmospheric impressions of how life in the salt mines and ancient villages might have been.
Fragrances designed by Paul Divjak and many hands-on objects invite visitors to use all their senses exploring the ancient times.
NATURE PARK EXHIBITION “EXPEDITION NAGELFLUH” OPENEDThe exhibition „expedition Nagelfluh“ opened on 17th June at the Nature Park Center AlpSeeHaus in Immenstadt, Germany. The exhibition was handed over officially to its owner – the Nature Park - in a ceremony on 11th June, which was attended of Bavaria’s Minister of Environment, Marcel Huber.
Rolf Eberhardt, CEO of the Nature Park as well as many guests including politicians and the media were impressed by the multifaceted interactive elements of the exhibition.
In the exhibition visitors become part of an extraterrestrial exploration team, analyzing the culture and nature of the Nature Park. Using decoder disks, even the alien language used by the extraterrestrial researchers, can be understood. The language has been developed in co-operation with the elementary school in Stein/Immenstadt.
