Off to Germany!

I'm delighted to have been invited to speak about exhibition development and to also critique exhibitions in Nuremberg and Berlin with the staff of Hüttinger Interactive Exhibitions in Germany this week.

For the past several years, Hüttinger Interactive Exhibitions has been doing a professional development program with their staff. Once a year, their staff climbs into a bus for several days of exhibition critiques. First they visit one institution for which Hüttinger has worked, and then another museum for which their respected competitors have produced exhibits. This year we will be visiting museums in Berlin.

The deal with their staff is simple: Hüttinger pays all expenses and the staff donate a full day of their free time, and there is no obligation for anybody to participate. Prior to the Berlin museum junket, I will lead Exhibit Development Workshops at Hüttinger's headquarters in Nuremberg. Previous internationally respected speakers for this workshop series have included Peter Anderson, Elsa Bailey, and Ian Russell.

While I'm away in Germany, I thought now would be a great time to post an essay previously featured on ExhibiTricks by Managing Director Axel Hüttinger.  Click here to read "What is Innovative Exhibition Design?"
