Redesigning the Urgeschichtliches Museum Blaubeuren
It’s the oldest representational depiction of humanity - the 40,000-year-old “Venus vom Hohle Fels”. Together with other works of art and musical instruments from the Upper Palaeolithic era, it found a home near its site of discovery on the southern edge of the Swabian Jura, at the Urgeschichtliches Museum Blaubeuren (urmu). The 580-year-old hospital building has now been redesigned to show off these spectacular, one-of-a-kind testaments to culture. Art from the Ice Age is presented in ten divided, themed rooms, each individually designed as different worlds of colour and space. Walls and floors are coordinated with the installation, and are part of the exhibition concept.
