Humboldt Forum

Welcome to Space Forum

At the Humboldt Forum the museums of Ethnology and Asian Art found a new very prominent location in the heart of Berlin. Behind its historical façade this new building puts the various cultures of the world at the center.  Important exhibits are now given the stage they deserve and thus the opportunity to be seen and discussed anew by many visitors.

The reorganization of the museums in the Humboldt Forum offers a unique opportunity to rethink the great collections. Space has been a key partner in this new beginning, designing and implementing most of the interactive, immersive stations at the museums. This has resulted in installations on a wide variety of topics using an even wider variety of technologies. We always had only one thing in mind: how can we create the best experience for a certain topic and a certain target group. You could also say that we turned the second and third floor of Humboldt Forum into Space Forum.

13 interactive installations

From the silk road in china to Oceania from Cameroon to the indigenous in today’s Canada. The installations in the different departments of the museums are as diverse as the artefacts on display and the historical contexts that are laid out. Each of the commissioned interactive installations was carefully developed together with historians, curators and local artists to guarantee a maximum degree of authenticity. The Space developer crew then made sure that these ingredients were put together to a very immersive experience talking directly to the addressed target group. 

From paper testing to the finished works

To create smooth seamless experiences it takes many steps, a lot of prototyping, trial&error and feedback loops. Along the way we always wanted to get the users’ feedback. That’s why we did pen and paper tests at a very early stage of the development process. Additionally, we did on site testing with a large number of users for some last-minute adjustments as well as bug fixing…

Discover the first finished pieces. There is lots more to come. At the Humboldt Forum as well as on this website. We are just all so proud and happy that our first pieces for this institution are up and running that we wanted to share them with you. Even if some things are still a little beta.

Along the silk road

Under the cupula, at the heart of the new museum, you can let your eyes roam over the Silk Road and witness a long journey. Observe how influences move from east to west. And likewise from West to East. 

Help the King of Cameroon

Young visitors can meet Rudolf Manga Bell, the king of Cameroon during the German colonial occupation. See how three children played an important role in informing the German Empire of the crying injustice in their colonies. And even better become one of the kids in an interactive installation.

Build a boat and learn everything about it

Lets go to Oceania where young visitors don’t just build a boat together with some local guys without  a single nail. They can Immerse themselves in the world of islands and o on journeys with the many different boats to learn what happened on the high seas.

There are still many more installations to come. We will keep you updated. Or even better. Go to the Humboldt Forum yourself and immerse yourself into these many different worlds.
