Context With the reconstruction of Dresden Castle, in recent years it has proved possible to stage new presentations of the collection items. The reconstructed »Grünes Gewölbe« – green vault – was followed in 2009 by the »Fürsten- galerie« or princes gallery – a gallery of portraits and busts of the royal rulers at the Residenzschloss, or royal palace – and, in 2010, the Türckische Cammer – a collection of Ottoman art. The exhibition rooms of the Fürstengalerie and Türckische Cammer – Turkish chamber – were de- signed and planned by the Peter Kulka architectural office.
Türckische Cammer A signage concept was developed for the Türckische Cammer that does not inhibit the effect and observation of the magnificent treasures. Introductory and explanatory texts for the selected exhibits in German and English were applied to the silk-coated wall cabinets on the covers of the light wells. In the case of standing cabinets and cabi- nets on pedestals lettered stone plates were applied, also with silver silk-screen print.
