From 14 August 2011 onwards, the German Film Museum in Frankfurt am Main presents visitors a completely renovated building containing an inspiring, high-quality permanent exhibition, conceived and designed by ATELIER BRÜCKNER from Stuttgart (Germany). In an exhibition area of 800 square metres spread out over two floors, a compact setting is revealed that works with the means and methods of film and, at the same time, reflects them. Narrative spaces, dramaturgically conceived down to the smallest details, immerse the visitor in the world of film.

The common denominators on both floors are darkened spaces and sensitively employed, emphasising light – analogous to projection in film. Style-forming elements of film are also expressed in the subtle dramaturgy of sound and space. “We want to make the exhibits talk, tell stories, move the visitor and create a lasting, unforgettable experience“, said Prof. Uwe R. Brückner, who developed the narrative dramaturgy of the new permanent exhibition with his multidisciplinary team. “The content-generated scenography promotes a dialog between space and content, between exhibit and observer.“ The theme of the first floor is “filmic vision“. The visitors are invited to take a trip through a caleidoscope-like narrative space, which is primarily dedicated to the technical discoveries and inventions of the 19th century. The early forms of curiosity, in the sense of wanting to watch something happening, are reflected in pieces of apparatus – in some cases rather bizarre – which can be rediscovered in the shape of replicas. The design language of the accentuated showcases that characterise the narrative space is reminiscent of film drums and tape.

The exhibition unit entitled “filmic narrative“ on the second floor introduces the visitor to the present-day possibilities of film. The focus is on the design of film images and their emotional effect. Here, the aim is to sharpen the visitors` perception of film as a medium. In a narrative space similar to a studio, the visitors can take a look behind the scenes of film production and are urged to actively participate in the technical process involved in film-making.
