VisitorBox aims to support small to medium-sized cultural institutions in developing exhibitions with digital components. In this project, a set of design cards was developed. The cards and the rules of the game are designed in such a way that they can enable users to implement digitally supported exhibitions even without specific prior curatorial or digital knowledge. The VisitorBox online platform also provides access to a digital network of successful exhibition projects, whose conception and realisation can be traced and adapted for one's own project on the basis of the relevant card selection in each case.
