Relaunch of the multimedia rooms in Admont Abbey

 

Since 2003, Admont Abbey Museum has had three multimedia rooms designed by Peter Hans Felzmann. One focusses on the eventful life of the order's founder Benedictus of Nursia. A second attempts to explain the "Regula Benedicti", the rule of the order, which is now to be found as a general code of values in many constitutions of European countries, in an impressive, entertaining, understandable and entertaining way.

The rooms, which were awarded a national prize for multimedia (application in art & culture), have been technically overhauled after 20 years and now represent the state of the art in multimedia technology.

The revision of "The path of St Benedict" required not only a partial re-cut of the film material with supplementary material, but also a slight architectural change. Two measures that together create a new, even more attractive spatial ambience.

For the relaunch of the room "The path of the rule", it was necessary to partially reshoot those parts of the monastery that relate to the monastery's present. The transition from projection technology to LED technology proved to be useful for the technical realisation.

Imparting knowledge, especially when it is as much about history as it is about spirituality, as is the case here in Admont, should be fun. Everything that you absorb in an experience-orientated way takes on more meaning and remains anchored in your memory for longer.

The old and new multimedia rooms try to fulfil this requirement.
