On the occasion of the 15-year anniversary of Idee und Klang Audio Design (Idea and Sound Audio Design), a publication has been created that is dedicated to sound scenography and at the same time reflects the work of the atelier. It includes questions about the still young field of acoustic exhibition design as well as personal experiences in the area of audio creation. The topic is framed by interviews and texts by guest authors within this discipline.Idee und Klang Audio Design is a team of composers, sound designers and technologists who create artistic, historical or commercial living environments with sound and music. The works of the studio founded in 2005 comprise sophisticated media installations, exhibitions and brand facilities such as the National Museum of Qatar, BMW Museum in Munich and Imperial War Museum in London.
It is interdisciplinary teams with complex compositions that develop and realise exhibitions. Groenlandbasel directs a network of specialists and with "Spaces and Stories" enables an insight into the cooperation and the dedicated efforts of a wide range of involved parties. Exhibition thinkers and exhibition makers express themselves alongside each other in essays, shorter highlights and interviews.
The texts are accompanied by a diverse selection of projects by Groenlandbasel: museum developments, special and permanent exhibitions, architecture, as well as indoor and outdoor installations. With text contributions including: Dominic Huber, Director Rimini Protokoll, Zurich; Nina Gorgus, Curator Historical Museum Frankfurt; Ramon De Marco, Sound Designer Idee und Klang, Basel; Daniel Tyradellis, freelance curator, Berlin; Beat Hächler, Director Alpine Museum of Switzerland, Bern; Sibylle Lichtensteiger, Director Stapferhaus Lenzburg.
The new edition of this successful series presents the status quo in exhibition design and scenography with over 110 projects and 15 interviews. The focus is on current trends and corresponding methods, renowned firms, exceptional designers and curators. The manifesto "Indian method – design in difficult times" takes a stand regarding the current social and political discourse and opens up new strategies for poetic spaces. The editors: Prof. Uwe J. Reinhardt, M.A., is a cultural scientist, journalist, exhibition maker, since 2005 professor of text/verbal communication at the Design department of Peter Behrens School of Arts at the Hochschule Düsseldorf and teaches together with Philipp Teufel, director at the edi – Exhibition Design Institute.

Until spring 2020 the trade fair sector was still boasting: “You can’t email a handshake!” Then corona came along and everything was turned upside down: exhibitions were postponed, cancelled or relocated into digital space. It also brought forth new concepts with which we had not reckoned a couple of years ago: virtual twins, AR or VR walk-through stands, online exhibitions with new meeting formats, or quite different ideas that are currently turning the sector upside down, providing new impetuses and making the trade fair a place as we have never known it before. The new trade fair yearbook presents not only the most exciting exhibition settings of the previous year but also entices us into virtual space.
Sabine Marinescu and Janina Poesch are both architects, journalists and founders of PLOT – the network in the area of spatial installations. Since 2008 they have been publishing print and online magazines as well as reference books in the wide field of scenography.Search inside on ISSUU.com
The world is changing. A host of developments are impacting our lives: sustainability, values, equality, purpose, digitisation or "Gen Z". However, a consideration of the majority of brand experiences gives rise to the question: Where is the change? It occurred: with COVID-19! And suddenly it was about people’s lives, about our supply system and saving our and many other sectors.
This is therefore a special Event Design Yearbook. It allows us to revel in projects that have been prohibited for months in 2020. It also shows experience concepts from the time before COVID-19. With all the foreseen changes after the pandemic, as described for example by Cedric Ebener in the interview, one can only speculate how the concepts presented here might look in future.

The current credo of live communication is: Let them participate and decide! It seems that the times in which products were displayed in rigid procedures and self-celebratory event formats are over. Now the question is what will enthuse visitors, how can they be incorporated and not least encouraged to make social media posts.
A noticeable number of event formats in this edition indeed involve their participants to a great extent. This is evident in concepts orientated towards added value and experiences, as well as in possibilities for interaction and individual freedom of choice.
However, what sounds straightforward is a challenge. How does one overcome inhibitions? What enthuses spoilt visitors hungry for experiences? How does one create experiences suitable for social media? Many of the around 60 events in this edition show potential solutions in practice. An in-depth interview provides answers and advice from specialists.

The Best Events, the Latest Trends
The current edition of the “Event Design Yearbook” presents the best and most interesting events of the last year informatively, with a wealth of pictures.
What is new, however, is the author: with the Yearbook 2018 / 2019, Katharina Stein – specialist journalist, scene insider and founder of “eveosblog” for event marketing – is looking for small and large, private and public, cultural and corporate, exceptional and fascinating events, which all distinguish themselves through the idea behind it and its realization.
We are living in a networked age and can no longer deny digitisation. Although the events sector is currently characterised primarily by live experiences, events are becoming increasingly hybrid: new forms of spatial communication are emerging, which blur the boundaries between real and virtual experience.
With this yearbook, the authors present, informatively and with a wealth of images, more than 50 successful examples where both digital innovation and personal encounters are the focus of the concept. Through numerous interviews with specialists in the sector, they venture a look into the future, in order to ask quite exclusively: “What is actually ‘the next big thing’?”
As every year, the current edition of the Event Design Yearbook also pre- sents the best and most interesting events of the last year informatively, with a wealth of pictures. What is new, however, are the authors: with the Yearbook 2016/2017, the two makers of PLOT – Staging Spaces and authors of the Trade Fair Design Annual, Sabine Marinescu and Janina Poesch, are looking for small and large, private and public, cultural and corporate, exceptional and fascinating events, which all distinguish themselves through the idea behind it and its realization. Interviews and theoretical texts accompany the projects, with inspiration and information going hand in hand and providing an insight into the sector.
