(Historical) Media Equipment

Analog photographs and film, video and sound recordings are dependent on the availability of technical equipment. The last room of the Schaudepot is devoted to these devices. In order to find out what is inside the display case, you have to press the various buttons. Originally assembled to help view and play back the collections, these technical devices have since become enlightening objects as testimonials to the spirit of research and the power of invention. The pieces gathered together in the Schaudepot provide an insight into our collection of tape recorders, gramophones, record players, cameras and film cameras.

We hope that this small pamphlet has at least given you a brief overview of our collection and helped you find your way through it.
