Scenography is a matter of translating. A spatial mise-en-scène that addresses all of our senses is developed from the programme of contents. Like a theatrical stage, scenography creates atmosphere and a space that tells the onlooker a story, sometimes appearing rather reserved and abstract, at other times illusionistic and opulent. Scenography uses all of the spatial design resources at its disposal and provides the ideal backdrop for presenting artefacts. Its instruments include a spatially structured architecture as well as the immaterial language of media and light, and presentation techniques for objects of every kind. Its operating grounds are exhibitions and room installations, public and private spaces, and the worlds of art and commerce. Our scenographies are created with changing focuses by architects, interior designers, stage designers, exhibition organisers, as well as graphic, lighting and media designers. The discipline of scenography is still relatively young and is characterised by its design diversity.
