Shopping in the Middle Ages – in a department store in Mainz

Prof. Hartmut Jahn & Dr. Elmar Rettinger

Presented in the new form of the media book – with text and numerous images, enhanced with 3D animations, music and additional information. New insights into medieval urban and economic history. Large department stores are not an invention of the modern age – they already existed over 600 years ago. A true shopping paradise was housed within the walls of medieval Mainz in the Kaufhaus am Brand department store near the cathedral. The sources tell of a varied range of goods. Exotic spices, fish, wool, soap and much more were traded and bargained for. People not only bought what they needed for their daily lives, but also took advantage of the wide range of luxury goods from faraway countries. The illustrated non-fiction book, enriched with media content, answers questions: What did the medieval department store look like? How exactly did the wholesale trade in the Mainz department store work? Who set the prices, supervised the law and the law in the sale?

It surprises with a document that is unique in German economic history: the Mainz department store regulations from the middle of the 15th century.

Moving Types – Letters in motion.
A retrospective from the beginnings of film until today.

Prof. Anja Stöffler, Prof. Ralf Dringenberg & Dr. Annette Ludwig

First augmented exhibition catalogue with ‘built-in cinema’

Moving Types – Letters in Motion’ reflected the use of ‘writing on the move’ from the beginnings of film to the present day, in which mobile media systems are transforming the design and reading of writing into a completely new, mobile, networked, multi-sensory exchange of information. In a retrospective over 300 historical and current media formats will be presented by international artists, filmmakers and designers, including Muriel Cooper, Paul Jeffrey Sharits, Étienne Robial, Ludovic Houplain, Gary Hill, David Small, Alex Gopher and Matthias Zentner. The catalogue presents, among other things, the artistic habillages of the ARTE theme nights, music videos from Bob Dylan to Soko, station logos of ARTE, Al Jazeera, RTL and the historical MTV Idents, the colourful brand world of the Oscar-winning short film “Logorama” or the advertising worlds from Mercedes to Nike. As an exhibition catalogue with “built-in cinema”, ‘Moving Types’ itself writes a piece of media history. More than 80 film clips are made accessible to the reader by means of a QR code via a proprietary Moving Types APP (IOS/Android).
