Impressive acclaim for the Prison Museum

The Prison Museum in Horsens made it to the finals and top ten in The Luigi Micheletti Awards presented by The European Museum Academy at this year’s ceremony hosted in Skopje, Macedonia. The jury’s motivation was that the Prison Museum has contributed to making Horsens, a former prison town, a positive experience and the jury also praised the authentic prison narratives. In total 32 museums were competing for the The Luigi Micheletti Award.

The Prison Museum also fighted head to head in the finals at the museum business’ world championships, The Best in Heritage 2017, at the annual global conference taking place in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Making the finals and being appointed as one of Europe’s 10 most influential museums this year, is a great achievement both for the Prison Museum and for exhibition designers Kvorning Design & Communication! Big congratulations to the Prison Museum and everybody on board the team!

25 years in exhibition business

When the bells ring out at midnight and 2017 sets off, Kvorning Design & Communication can formally celebrate 25 years in the exhibition business. Designing and producing exhibitions around the globe, Arne Kvorning’s journey took off in 1992. Later forming one of the biggest Danish and Nordic teams working on the international scene, his line-up has now made it into the league of the world’s 10 most influential exhibition design agencies.

The upcoming New Year’s Eve is a historic milestone for Kvorning Design & Communication and marks 25 years in the exhibition business. Since 1992 the Copenhagen based exhibition team has created magic rooms and moments for people in more than 50 countries around the globe. Blending architecture, narration and design, vivid and vibrant exhibitions are formed, and by means of dramaturgic effects and narrative techniques from film production the agency’s modern dissemination captivate audiences worldwide.

Delphi, Dover, Dubai …
The Kvorning team design exhibitions of any kind; simple or complex, big or small. Keeping the doors open, over the years the design jobs have become bigger and more advanced and the invitations to tender for the world’s biggest exhibition assignments arrive with increasing frequency. Right now the team is working on several major projects: At Shannxi History Museum in Xi’an, China, Kvorning is designing a touring exhibition around a series of inaccessible, underground tombs with unique frescos from the Tang dynasty through virtual reality, animations and movies. Kvorning is also designing for the visitor centre at Greece’s largest bauxite mine for The Vagonetto Fokis Mining Park in Delphi. A few years ago Kvorning conceptualized, designed and installed one of English Heritage’s most popular tourist attractions, Dover Secret Wartime Tunnels. Here Kvorning won the competition for the exhibition telling the tale of how approximately 400 000 allied soldiers were rescued from the beaches of Dunkirk during WW2. This operation was masterminded and organized in the tunnel system reaching far into the white cliffs of Dover. In Dubai and other emirates several interesting competitions are ongoing. In Norway, one of Kvorning’s key markets, the team is working on designs for Norwegian Petroleum Museum in Stavanger, Norsk Jektefartsmuseum at Bodø and no less than eight Norwegian world heritage sites listed by UNESCO. The agency is indeed also producing for their home market; recently the Prison Museum in Horsens, which Kvorning revitalized with storytelling, projections, interactive elements, light, sounds and smells, was awarded several international prizes. Last week Kvorning finished in a very honorary second place in fierce competition with nine international exhibition designers as Lead Exhibition Designer for the exhibitions at the world’s largest archaeological museum, Grand Egyptian Museum, in Cairo.
