Project Description

The special exhibition “Jewish? Prussian? Or what? Relations and Interweavements in the 18th and 19th Centuries” at the Prussian Museum in Minden is a contribution by the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe (LWL) to the nationwide theme year “1700 Years of Jewish Life in Germany”. The exhibition focuses on presenting the history of the relationships between the Prussian state, Jewish life and Jewish culture in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The exhibition follows a strongly scenographic and interactive approach. Digital tools are used to transfer the historical exhibits into the socially relevant debates of the present. Visitors are to be brought into dialogue with the objects through the use of engaging digital media.

The challenge was to project precisely round, coloured light circles with predefined diameters (1.2 m to 3 m) in the 10 exhibition rooms. The choice fell on PHOS 25 projection luminaires from Derksen, which fulfil all optical-technical requirements and can be flexibly inserted into a track system. The projection set-ups were first precisely measured to compensate for optical distortions and to realise the specified circle size. Different projection angles had to be compensated by keystone correction of the projection templates. A high-brightness PHOS 65 LT projector was used to display the red circle of light in a high ambient light.
