Fugger and Welser Museum

This multimedia book-installation was developed on behalf of the Fugger and Welser Interactive Museum. Here, Jakob Fugger »the Rich« and Bartholomäus V. Welser come alive and tell their story. In the museum‘s foyer the book offers an overview and attracts arriving visitors into the house.

The conversion of one of Maximilian Museum‘s historic paintings (»Winterbild«) into an animate scene is particularly fascinating. The portrayed individuals on the town hall square move, talk and trade with each other, children play and even a thunderstorm is rolling in.

An unusual insight into Augsburg‘s renaissance is offered. Moreover, this interactive book functions as a very special guestbook: here, visitors can leave a multimedia comment on the museum.
