Setting up permanent and temporary exhibitions
Each exhibition is unique and should begin with a clearly articulated philosophy of design. We begin the process exactly the way that excellent storytellers do it - searching for a way that the exhibition’s media can serve the story, to present its context and engage the visitors. Each project has its own designer’s solution – an appearance, feeling, atmosphere – which is derived from the mission of the institution who sets up the exhibition, and the presumption of success is the rich experience in the field of planning and design of an exhibition, the development of media and the choreography of the experiences of the visitors.
Preliminary museological programme
The Ministry of Culture calls the first level of the preparation of documentation of the setting up of permanent museum exhibitions the Preliminary Museological Programme (PMP), and sometimes in practice this documentation is also known under the title of the general-conceptual solution of a permanent museum exhibition. Inside it contains the interpretive plan and the conceptual design of the exhibition.
The defined museological concept
A defined museological concept is the master document which includes the interpretive, content-thematic and formed development of all the exhibited elements. The defined museological concept develops the types of exhibited elements, as well as the visual and textual contents of a permanent museum exhibition, connecting them with unique codes under which each exhibit is price defined in the calculation of expenses.
We follow their stories and after we hand over their keys to those because of whom and with whom we also embarked on a great adventure in heritage.
This is the strategy of creating the visitor experience which links the story and subject of the exhibition. Communication goals, target groups and learning styles are defined within an intellectual framework which ultimately leads the design and content development. This is the backbone of the process of planning an exhibition.
Design means the three-dimensional and two-dimensional visualisation of the interpretive plan of an exhibition – what it will look like, how it will be perceived and how it will be built. Design and graphics are supplied in several packages – conceptual, schematic, detailed and architectural.
The development and/or coordination of the content of an exhibition includes source research, the selection of artefacts, the writing of panel and exhibition texts, audio-visual scripts and photo scenarios.
This is the logistical coordination of the production of an exhibition from the planning to the opening. It links and controls the various functions of the planning, design and implementation in order to ensure good communications, quality, the control of budgets and a schedule of adhering to agreed deadlines.
