In collaboration with the LWL-Preußenmuseum Minden, innovative, scenographic concepts for the redesign and reframing of this traditional museum were searched for. Under the direction of lecturer Johann Jörg, five interdisciplinary teams consisting of students from TU Berlin’s Bühnenbild and Architecture courses examined the exciting history of Prussia and its traces in Westphalia. Prof. Dr. med. Gerhard Kilger, a scenography expert and pioneer of the scene, provided the conceptual briefing and an inspiring input.
The student’s focus in the designs was on the breaking up of history, the transformation of content into a language of today and the visionary thinking of politics, society and architecture through awareness of their own history. Against the background of controversial discussions about Europe and the continuing migration debate, Prussia and its politics are more interesting than ever.
Five very different scenographic concepts were developed, with new, fresh readings and unusual, surprising translations into space, that were controversially discussed – but (unfortunately) only one concept can be realized:
We would like to congratulate Jakob Blazejczak, Anne Kummetz and Lukas Kesler – their design convinced the jury and will be developed further in the following months. In the television broadcast from WDR, the winning team reports on the challenging design work and the selected concept.
Students: Jakob Blazejczak, Thalia Budin, Svenja Christian, Anja Dietz, Anne-Marie Heydeck, Marian Jobke, Lukas Kesler, Anne Kummetz, Linda Rodenheber, Greta Wolf-Rosenbaum
