German National Library
Digital Exhibitions

New standards in the digital presentation of complicated museum content.

Together with the German National Library, we show in new exhibition concepts how historical subjects can be made accessible on the internet: arts in exile, 100 years of the First World War and signs - books - networks: from cuneiform to binary code.

These full-service projects have proven that exhibits never shown publically, or those only displayed locally, can be combined with existing collections to create new forms of exhibition.


"For anyone interested in German art and contemporary history, Künste in exile is an both a contentually and visually interesting way of exploring the fates of artists and discovering their works interactively. ]init[ is very proud to have participated in this nationally important cultural project."
