“Emanuel Goldberg – Architect of Knowledge”
Vernissage: friday, march 10th 2017, 7pm

Technische Sammlungen Dresden, Junghansstraße 1-3, 01277 Dresden

“A chemist by learning, a physicist by calling and a mechanic by birth” – that is how Emanuel Goldberg (Moscow 1881 – 1970 Tel Aviv) described the poles of his varied scientific and entrepreneurial activities in almost all fields of image technology. In Leipzig and Berlin, he explored the basics of photography. In Dresden, he developed novel cameras and apparatuses for the knowledge management of the future. After his violent expulsion from National Socialist Germany, he founded one of Israel’s first technology companies in Tel Aviv.

The exhibition focuses on Emanuel Goldberg’s estate that his family recently gave to the Technische Sammlungen Dresden. The photographs and instruments, writings and drawings, and the remains of Goldberg’s private experimental workshop form the starting point of a search for traces in the prehistory of our information society.

In this exhibition, photographers and filmmakers, artists and engineers, scenographers and students from Berlin and Leipzig present the results of their artistic and experimental
engagement with the ideas and the life of Emanuel Goldberg. Alongside the originals from Goldberg’s estate, photo and film installations, replicas of his perception experiments,
and models of his knowledge machine are on view and can partially be tested.

Research project lectured at OISTAT conference

Our research project of the digitization of the collection of theatre architecture granted by German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG) moves forward: almost 1000 objects have already been captured and scanned. In October, Prof. Dr. Bri Newesely (Beuth HS Theatertechnik) and project leader Franziska Ritter presented first results of the research at OISTAT (International Organisation of Scenographers, Theatre Architects Technicians) conference in Sevilla. With their lecture ‘Mapping Theatre Architecture’ they could promote the project and further extend the research network.
