An exhibition based on archive material from the literary forum Leselampe in Salzburg, which has hosted almost all the greats of German-language literature over the past 50 years.
A truly unsuitable exhibition space and a tight budget required an exhibition architecture that creates its own spatial atmosphere and at the same time costs little to produce. This led to the development of a modular system consisting of separate exhibition units, which provided sufficient space to hang the exhibits and allowed a flexible arrangement in the room. The focus was to manufacture the exhibition inventory as simple as possible.
In addition to the exhibition architecture, a contemporary identity of the exhibition and its accompanying materials had to be designed.

Eine Aus­stellung rund um Archiv­material des Literatur­forums Leselampe in Salzburg, bei dem fast alle Größen der deutsch­sprachigen Literatur in den vergangenen 50 Jahren zu Gast waren.
Ein denkbar ungeeigneter Ausstellungs­raum und ein knappes Budget verlangten nach einer Ausstellungs­architektur, die ihre eigene räumliche Atmos­phäre erschafft und zugleich in der Produktion wenig kostet. Das führte zur Entwicklung eines modulartigen Systems aus einzelnen Ausstellungs­einheiten, die für ausreichend Fläche zur Hängung der Exponate sorgten, und eine flexible Anordnung im Raum erlaubten. Auf eine möglichst einfache Herstellung des Ausstellungs­inventars wurde besonders geachtet.
Neben der Ausstellungs­architektur galt es einen zeitgemäßen Auftritt der Ausstellung und deren Begleit­materialien zu gestalten.
