Every summer, the façade of the Badisches Landesmuseum in Karlsruhe Palace becomes a projection screen for media art. Indeed, the museum as a whole is increasingly building its profile as a player in the digital world. For example, as part of its »Archaeology in Baden« exhibition, the Badisches Landesmuseum has recently launched the »Expothek«, a participative project in which creative collections and digital concepts are developed and implemented in partnership with the public.
Like in a library, visitors will have access to all objects and hence become users of the museum. In partnership with the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the museum is also offering users the possibility to scan objects from its collection with a high-end 3D scanner. The thus digitized objects can then be used for research or art projects. Finally, digital media installations and VR stations in the exhibition also allow visitors to plunge into bygone eras all the while being supplied with background information.
