Stefan Iglhaut

Stefan Iglhaut, exhibition organiser and cultural manager, has been working since the beginning of the nineties at the interface where art, science and the public merge. As the curator of international exhibition projects and project manager of major events like the theme park at world exhibition EXPO 2000, he operates in the space where art, cultural history, science history and brand communications meet. He brings together project development teams from all disciplines of content and design whose working style is marked by a holistic, networked and diversity-rich approach. High content quality and visual imaginativeness are inseparable for Stefan Iglhaut. His editorial and publication activities have brought forth books, catalogues and electronic publications which deal, in particular, with the boundary and cross-over regions between science, art, media and society. He acts as a lecturer both in Germany and abroad.

Architect and Scenographer

Gesa von Grote

Dipl.– Ing. Gesa von Grote is an architect and scenographer. She is responsible for the artistic direction and coordination of the design team. Her design philosophy, which she sees as the process of taking changing contexts and, from these, developing new perspectives, is something that evolved while working in architecture offices and during many years of collaboration with museums and companies. This context-focused approach gives birth to design interpretations of themes from cultural history and science as well as brand contents within spaces that tell stories to the onlooker, rendering these accessible to a wide audience. In Gesa von Grote’s presentation concepts, the surrounding space, exhibition architecture, graphics, media and object world are intricately bound up with one another. The design process under her direction means seeking a balance and occupying the role of intermediary between communicative impact and practical requirements. This is complemented by the joy she experiences in conception, project controlling and management.
