Dr. M.Christina Zingerle – studio exhibit
Contents, Concept, Curator, Management
Exhibitions tell stories to people. I have been working with exhibitions and museums since 1998. The challenge in curating an exhibition, in my opinion, lies in how to present the contents clearly, and at the same time in a way that allows the visitors to also form their own images.
Oliver Pfeiler – studio exhibit
Graphic Design, Management
After 19 years in an architect’s office, I have now been working with exhibitions, particularly focusing on traveling exhibitions, since 2003. There is no recipe for design. Every topic requires its own individual form. The development of exhibition design is a process of motion. If the design captures the mood of the exhibition contents and visualizes this spatially, it has succeeded!

Work starts with watching form, sound, motion, internal and external space of living organisms and their relationship to culture. Identification of found objects and interpretations of situations transform to symbols for thoughts, emotional and mental conditions. In a process of searching further elements embody the environment of these thoughts.
