I was invited to design an exhibition about the end of the Austrian-Hungarian empire and the transition to the first republic of Austria, which was a quite decisive event in austrian history a 100 years ago.
The exhibition is called "Karl & Zita - im Schatten der Geschichte". Karl and Zita were the last imperial couple of Austria. They resided in Schloss Eckartsau - which was private property of the Habsburg family back then - the months before they were exiled by the end of the First World War.

We wanted to create an interactive environment where visitors can explore the different characters and ambiguities of this turbulent episode during the first world war theirselves.
Having worked on the future for so many years now it was an exciting challenge to dive back into history.

more coming soon!
