Multimedia exhibition about the Zwinger officially opened

In 2007 the Nymphenbad was under renovation. In order to show the visitors this hidden gem in the Dresden Zwinger, a visualization film was created. This soon resulted in a much larger project with around 30 students and employees. The work was initially organized via htw-dresden.de/~zwinger and resulted in an own documentation tool DokuVis by Jonas Bruschke. Further development will be funded by the DFG in 2022/2023 as part of the IDOVIR project.

Very detailed 3D models of existing buildings as well as drafts and ideas were created and evaluated in a feasibility study for a museum presentation. The tender for implementation won mbox Berlin, who implemented the exhibition as a multimedia VR spectacle Zwinger Xperience. The exhibition was officially opened on June 28th, 2021. On the occasion of the opening, the MDR Sachsenspiegel reported on the project and the exhibition.
