Axel Braun, Städel Museum (DE)

Over the past few years the Städel Museum – Germanys oldest and most renowned civic museum foundation – has undergone a huge transformation. The Museum took its 200th anniversary as an occasion to redefine his educational offers and expand the museum experience into the digital realm.

Thus a broad line-up of ambitious digital projects has been launched: various Digitorials for visitors introduction of special exhibitions (http://maniera.staedelmuseum.de/en/), a wide-ranged and freely accessible online course for modern art (http://onlinekurs.staedelmuseum.de/), an educative computer game for children (http://imagoras.staedelmuseum.de/) or a Virtual Reality reconstruction of the Museums historic hanging.

Axel will share some insides and relevant learning from his current and preceding projects at Städel Museum. He will also speak about the various challenges and – of course – the ultimately successful steps among the museums way to its digital extension.
