Outdoor Projection At The Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum, Cologne

For more than a hundred years the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum has presented non-European history, art and culture in North Rhine-Westphalia. As a public institution it encourages the understanding and tolerance in a society that is increasingly dominated by a multicultural coexistence.

The new building near the Neumarkt in Cologne was opened after eight years of construction in October 2010. The proximity to the inner city and the excellent public transport connection make the museum an attraction for an international audience. The huge Indonesian rice storage in the central foyer creates a new cultural emblem.

The main entrance is located on the north side of the new building, on a major thoroughfare. Information on current exhibitions and programs is projected with light onto the façade, using two graphic projectors - GL 1200 EL - from the German projection specialist Derksen Lichttechnik. The devices are mounted in front of the main entrance on a street lighting pole and project images at a height of ten meters onto the left and center wings of the building. Distortions resulting from the oblique angle of projection have been excluded in the preparation of the images, so that text and graphics are displayed in the correct aspect ratio.

The projection technology provides owners with two key advantages: first, messages can be placed without on-site changes to the facade, on the other hand, the motives can be changed easily and inexpensively.
