Action plan at the German Maritime Museum

As one of eight research museums of the Leibniz Association, the DSM is an innovative place of knowledge where research can be experienced. Thanks to Action Plan II, the eight museums can network and exchange ideas even better. In addition to the joint efforts for expanded science communication, mediation research and standards, restoration and conservation research, as well as international networking, the DSM realized exhibitions and actions with funds from Action Plan II. These appeal to even more people, function analogously and digitally in terms of accessibility, and score points with their sustainable use.

Game Jam

 

-

On the occasion of the A MAZE Festival, the eight research museums invited to a Museum Game Jam in July 2021: During the 48-hour marathon, teams from around the world tinkered with prototypes of a museum game. We gave them input and watched in fascination as creative game ideas grew. Following the motto "A World in Motion," a colorful interplay of diverse exhibits emerged: The POLARSTERN crosses fantastic worlds and meets underwater monsters as well as industrious robots. Have you become curious? Then try out the games directly. At the TALK "Playful Museums", we discussed what connects museums and games and why these communities should work together more closely.

Education competition

 

-

All research museums, the Leibniz Association and the Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper launched the educational competition "A World on the Move" in March 2021. Schools from all over Germany participated and submitted entries on the topics of "Globalization", "Museum of the Future" and "Origin of Objects". We are still delighted with the creative output and proudly present the results.

COG MEETS PLAYMOBIL

 

-

The special exhibition "COG meets PLAYMOBIL" retold the story of the cog from 1380 from June 26 to October 25, 2020. Many families were enthusiastic about the showcases, in which the historical stages were reconstructed with the help of the popular play figures, from the construction to the salvage to the conservation and exhibition of the merchant ship. In the show, young and old alike were able to solve riddles about the wreck on a multimedia touch table. Via the web special, the scenes remain online until now.

North Ligths

 

-

Due to its great success, the media installation "Screening Northern Lights" was extended twice and was thus on view from November 15, 2019 to January 27, 2020. The illumination in the outdoor area of the DSM was part of the Polar Weeks, which extended the special exhibition "SEA CHANGES - World & Sea in Transition" as an accompanying program. The façade illumination attracted many interested visitors, and guided evening walks through the outdoor area were also accepted with great enthusiasm. A video recalls the large-scale impressions.

MAPS KNOWLEDGE SEA

 

-

What types of nautical and marine charts were and are there? How were they made and used? What stories are associated with the surveying of the oceans and their depiction in maps? The special exhibition "KARTEN WISSEN MEER - Globalisierung vom Wasser aus" invites visitors from November 25, 2020 to November 30, 2021 to unravel sea charts of the past, to look over the shoulders of seamen, scientists and shipowners of the 19th century, to leaf through a ship's diary or to create travel routes themselves at the virtual chart table.

Light installation FRAME

 

-

Following the success of the temporary façade installation "Screening Northern Lights", the permanent light installation FRAME was installed on the DSM extension with the help of Action Plan II. Every day after dark, it displays the water level of the Weser via light and is thus regarded as a digital tide calculator. On special occasions, the FRAME lights up in various shows. Like an oversized light window, the museum opens up, visible from afar, and beams its contents into the surrounding area. Many photo fans and young people are attracted by the illuminated architecture and use the FRAME as a stage and meeting place.

Seeing the other

 

-

The installation "Seeing the Other - The Colonialist Gaze" provides insight into the travel albums of the soldiers of the Imperial Navy who were deployed in the former German colonies at the end of the 19th century. The historical motifs show the colonialist gaze with its ideological assumptions of political, economic, cultural and spiritual superiority. The open-air exhibition can also be visited digitally, each photograph is additionally linked to an audio contribution..
