For the museums in the city of Dresden we have created a collection database which acts as a virtual museum. In a temporary exhibition focusing on the Jewish inventor Emanuel Goldberg, who, amongst other achievements, was a co-founder of Zeiss Ikon, an adaptation of this application is being used as a kiosk system in the exhibition area. Here, visitors can access information about the exhibits during their visit. As a result, the collection database can be used for temporary events.
The web database’s interfaces can be set up cost effectively as a kiosk system for an exhibition project with relatively little effort. Based on the user interface’s modular structure, single functions in the collection database can be put together for temporary events as required. The data pertaining to the relevant works will then be linked with this adaptation.
