Remodelling the Übersee-Museum’s African collection, gewerkdesign developed an exhibition that should appeal to both scientists and ordinary people, just like the Übersee-Museum’s founder Hugo Schauinsland envisioned some 100 years ago. Accordingly, the collections’s many precious artefacts are accompanied by many impressive dioramas and scale models.
The exhibition offers many different approaches to historic and contemporary Africa, showing the continent’s changing political history as well as the everyday life of different people in today’s Nairobi. The intricate construction of the exhibition’s architecture also accommodates many works of art, which were created in cooperation with African artists, sculptors, filmmakers and musicians.
Portfolio / Range of Services: Service phases 6 – 9, signage, media stations (animations), planning of the exhibits’ presentation
