Technological developments open up new possibilities for the museum to present information to the public in a contemporary, experience-oriented form and thus actively support the transfer of knowledge. The art-historical need to present comprehensive contexts motivates reflection on suitable forms of presentation. Based on the topic of the very significant, but at the same time little documented First General German Art Exhibition Dresden 1946, this work describes an approach of virtual and interactive reconstruction of real spaces. For this purpose, the entire exhibition situation was compiled in extensive and interdisciplinary collaboration into a digital three-dimensional model, which, in the context of an art exhibition, enabled visitors to experience the space and exhibit situation immersively on multi-touch monitors and invited them to interactive exploration.
