The Swabians. Between Myth and Brand


Admired, feared, mocked – the Swabians have been talked about for nearly 2,000 years. That was the background for a major State Exhibition in Stuttgart presenting all facets of the famous – or notorious – people of Swabia.

Dominik Kuhn, alias Dodokay, is one of the best-known comedians in southwestern Germany. He was the voice artist for the German-language mediaguide for adults, presenting the exhibition in a charming, typically Swabian manner.

Videos produced by tonwelt show historical personalities introducing themselves and giving background information.

Our mediaguide gave visitors remote control over media stations and digital exhibits, enabling them to hear lip-synched audio tracks for the videos in their own language and to vote for the ‘most Swabian’ object in the show.
