Quasi ein Genie

Quasi ein Genie

Helmut Qualtinger (1928-1986), one of Austria's most renowned actors and entertainers, would have turned 75 in 2003. In order to celebrate this anniversary, the Wienmuseum dedicated an entire exhibition to this artist's life and work.

Movies, texts and assorted memorabilia were displayed using various technologies and interfaces. Custom remote controls for standard consumer DVD-Players were designed by Michael Wieser. Track numbers are displayed on the remote so that the players can be installed up to 25m away. A special audio-guestbook was implemented, enabling the visitors to record their comments and feedback.
