Rethinking museum objects and staging them in the European context27.10.2014 - (idw) Universität Augsburg
The EU-project EMEE calls for young scenographers to participate in the Young Scenographers Contest: Application deadline is November 28th 2014.
Augsburg/SSch/KPP The Young Scenographers Contest promises a new perspective on European cultural artifacts. It is being launched as part of the EU-project "EuroVision - Museums Exhibiting Europe" (EMEE), which is coordinated by Augsburg University. The contest is aimed at young scenographers, who are still studying or have already started entry into professional life. They are invited to rethink museum objects in the European context and restage them in a mulitperspective way.
We are looking forward to a large number of entries by young colleagues, because especially their new perception and approach have the potential to open new doors, says Prof. Uwe R. Brückner, creative director of Atelier Brückner. The Stuttgart office for exhibition design and scenography is a member of the EMEE project and have been entrusted with planning and organizing the contest.

Here, both the EMEE research project as well as the contest will be presented. Applications to participate in the contest will be accepted until November 28th 2014, the designs themselves can be submitted until January 30th 2015. The ceremony to present the prizes will take place in Graz on May 7th 2015, as part of the Designmonat Graz. This Event is followed by a travelling exhibition, which will tour through Europe until June 2016.
