VisitorBox aims to help small and medium-sized cultural institutions without their own digital development team to develop exhibitions with digital components. A core deck of cards has been designed in this project to which custom decks may be added. The cards and the rules for using these cards are designed in such a way that they can enable users to implement digitally supported exhibitions even without specific curatorial or digital prior knowledge. After its completion at the end of 2018, the VisitorBox online platform will also offer access to a digital network of successful exhibition projects, the conception and realisation of which can be reconstructed based on the respective relevant card selection and adapted for one’s own project.
