Newsletter May 2018

May we ask you a question? Every quarter of the year we like to send out a newsletter to keep you informed of our activities, new projects and developments on our platform. We also like to invite our clients and partners to events and walk-ins. We are happy to share our experiences with you and want to continue to do so even after 25 May 2018, when the new General Data Protection Regulation goes into effect.

If you are happy to continue receiving our newsletters and invitations, then please click here to give your consent. Please refer to our website for our privacy statement.

Very soon we will, among other things, tell you more about our new Toureditor. These past few weeks we have been very busy testing it. In the coming weeks we will focus on fine-tuning and planning. Stay tuned!

In this newsletter we will tell you about where we will be exhibiting the Podcatcher and about five new and exciting exhibitions.

Will we see you soon? We hope so!
The Guide ID team

Projects in the spotlights

King Tut – World Press Photo – Museum of Friesland – Cheddar Gorge & Caves – Märkisches Museum Berlin

This spring you can visit a number of beautiful and exciting projects where the Podcatcher will be used. Check out our 5 must-visit tips!

Tip 1:
King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh - California Science Center, Los Angeles, CA USA

This traveling exhibition is the largest King Tut exhibition ever! Guide ID is very proud to offer the audio tour on our Podcatchers for this special exhibition. At the California Science Center you can listen to the audio tour in English and Spanish. Discover more than 150 authentic objects from the famous tomb of the pharaoh - 60 of which have never been outside Egypt. On view until January 6 2019.

Tip 2:
World Press Photo, Amsterdam, NL

The world premiere of World Press Photo 2018 can be seen in De Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam until July 22th. More than 160 impressive photographs by 42 photographers from 22 countries.

The Podcatcher audio tour is included in the ticket price. A very special tour; twenty winning photographers and visual journalists tell their personal story with the how and why of their winning photo(s).
Curious? On May 22 and 23 there are walk-ins planned and you can experience this tour yourself!

Tip 3:
Museum of Friesland - Escher's Journey, Leeuwarden, NL

Great reviews in the Dutch newspapers with nice comments on the audio tour! In this audio tour, the artist speaks for himself, performed by top actors Pierre Bokma (NL) and Peter Greenaway (EN). They read from the many letters and diaries in which Escher reported on his travels and his life. Experience the tour at this special exhibition that can still be seen until 28 October 2018.

Tip 4:
Cheddar Gorge & Caves, Somerset, UK

The caves in Somerset are one of the UK’s most spectacular natural landmarks. Formed over 120,000 years ago, they follow the course of an ancient river and contain many amazing stalactites and stalagmites. Tourists can walk through two of the largest caves and learn about how they were created, stone-age occupation and their discovery. From the first of July we will be telling their stories on the Podcatcher!

Tip 5:
Märkisches Museum, Berlin, DE

On June 10th Berlin’s Märkisches Museum reopens its doors with a completely overhauled permanent exhibition and a brand new audio tour. Not only is the building the first purpose-built museum in the world, with over 4,000,000 objects in the vaults, it’s also the largest collection of exhibits pertaining Berlin’s rich history.
The challenge for Paul Spies (director of the Stadtmuseum and also co-curator for the upcoming Humboldt Forum) and his team was to condense the exhibition down to an exciting trip through the corner stones of the city’s historic milestones. We think they did a marvelous job and are proud to have been part of it. Walk Ins available upon request starting from June 10th.
