Nach einer langen Coronapause gab es nicht nur wieder die ersten Präsenzveranstaltungen, auch unser Austausch rollte wieder an. Wir waren uns im Winter bei den Vorbereitungen noch nicht sicher, ob wir im Frühling wirklich Gäste empfangen dürfen, doch am 01. April war es so weit und wir konnten Bahaaeldin, Heba, Nourhan und Omar am Bahnhof Willkommen heißen. Ein spannendes Sommersemester ist nun vorüber, worüber wir hier ein wenig berichten wollen:
My Name is Bahaaeldin Megahed, and I am a student of the Joint Master Museum Studies Helwan-Würzburg. I have been in Germany since April 1 at Wurzburg University for my master studies. On August 8, I moved to Stuttgart for three weeks to do an internship at jangled nerves.
My dream is to improve, design and create object-visitor communication in a combined real and virtual world for exhibitions and museums. I want to be able to bring to life what I can imagine and design on the computer. So I told Elisabeth
Greifenstein and Guido Fackler (Museology team Wuerzburg University) about my passion and my dream to do my internship with someone who brings together museology, architecture, communication and - most important for me - digitization.
I believe that visual resources can be preserved and saved from deterioration by digitization. Especially for the look and feel, digital content is a crucial part of the visitor experience.
jangled nerves is an interdisciplinary team specialized in experience design connecting the physical and the digital world. Big thank you to the jangled team and Wurzburg University for making this possible – I learned a lot in a short time and met some truly creative minds!
"We are currently on our two weeks internship in the TECHNOSEUM in Mannheim. During the internship we have been introduced to all of the various core departments in the museum such as the education department, collection department and exhibition department, to mention a few.
We were lucky to be part of a number of very special tours around the museum that were led by very inspiring museum professionals. We also had the opportunity to meet with the head of the exhibition department and discover interesting insights about temporary exhibitions, their logistics and requirements. Delving into the insides of the education department as well was very eye opening, we got the chance to understand the various education programs tailored for all the visitors and to help develop an interactive smartphone hunt for visitors.
The museum is very inspiring, and the collection is rich and massive, it was impressive for us to see the amount of work and logistics involved in order to create such unforgettable and successful experiences for the visitors." - Heba Barakat & Nourhan Abdelaziz
