"Gerhard Richter. Landscape"
Large thematic exhibition opens at the Kunsthaus Zürich

With "Gerhard Richter. Landscape", the Kunsthaus Zürich presents a unique thematic exhibition. The strict focus on the theme of landscape may be irritating at first glance. At second glance, however, this concentration reveals an incredible artistic range - and yet reflects the entire oeuvre of this exceptional artist - from a special perspective. tonwelt produces the audio tour for this exhibition in German for adults and children and in English, French and Italian in the adult version.

Discover the new collection presentation with an app or audio guide

The Kunstmuseum Bonn has redesigned its collection presentation on a rotational basis. Under the title "Nur nichts anbrennen lassen", the new art works to the collection can be seen alongside "classics" of art after 1945. The Kunstmuseum Bonn also used the momentum of the redesign to renew its audio tour. Based on the new tonwelt content management system supraCMS, the highlight tour is now available both as an Android and iOS app and as an classical audio guide on site. With this flexibility, the museum's concept of presenting a 'collection in motion' can be optimally achieved. In addition, the tour can be used as an app or alternatively as a classic audio guide to optimally address all visitor groups.

From online to distance

The limitations from the Covid-19 lockdown will be gradually fade out so that the museums can open again soon. After the reopening, however, visits will only be possible under stricter hygiene standards and with clear rules of social distance, which will also have an effect on the visitor guidance. We have compiled tips, services and offers that will actively support you during the reopening. Read here about our current offers for tourGuide group guiding systems, our new apps that fit perfectly into the tonwelt architecture and new offers for pre- and post-visit communication with your visitors.
