The visionaries behind the Visiodrom
We introduce ourselves
The makers of the Visiodrom are just as lively and colorful as the shows on the huge 360 projection screen.
The construction team
Daniel Mai, Thomas Drescher and Marcello Gross (from left to right) are the owners of the industrial monument Gaskessel. They work hard to preserve and develop the Visiodrom’s home. It’s a job that never ends – just when everything is finished, a new idea arises that requires structural changes. The team gives all tenants in the Gaskessel enormous flexibility and many possibilities. So far, no project has been too crazy or complicated not to be realized.
Daniel Mai is always at work. What he cannot construct does not exist on this planet. He will probably even build the first Mars colony. He is one of two architects who have turned Thomas Drescher’s visions into reality.
Thomas Drescher has a particular passion for old buildings, which he fills with new life. The examples of this are varied and impressive. With the Gaskessel Wuppertal, he has delivered his preliminary masterpiece.
Marcello Groß is the second architectural father of the new Gaskessel and Visiodrom. Planning and implementing unusual building projects is his profession. He is also committed to his district, as he never loses sight of the big picture.
The management team
Faton Zenuni and Dirk Emde (from left to right) are the managing directors of the Visiodrom. With their complementary skills, they ensure that guests and numbers feel equally at home. They are responsible for the events at the Visiodrom and lead the wonderfully friendly team of employees.
Faton Zenuni is a born host and the organizational talent on site. Whether guests or technology, nothing can upset him. Pleasantly smooth processes are his specialty. He is one of the two managing directors at the Visiodrom.
Dirk Emde is the master of figures, calculations and processes. As Managing Director, he plays a key role in shaping the development of the Visiodrom, provides the framework for the creative team and, with his high level of social commitment, ensures many contacts in every direction.
The creative team
Axel Kurz, Marie Haus and Christian Höher (from left to right) form the inner creative team. This is where ideas are born, shows are conceived, exhibitions are curated and networks are cultivated. Depending on the theme and its requirements, many external experts come together for a show project. The creative team has many strengths, the greatest of which is knowing which external advisors to bring on board.
Axel Kurz is the team’s style officer. As the owner of a full-service marketing agency, he and his team are responsible for the design of the exhibitions and the advertising presence. As a member of the creative team, he is responsible for the layout of the exhibitions.
Marie Haus has an enormous empathic talent. Her ability to think while listening is legendary. When an idea is looking for a way to be realized, it very often goes through her head. She connects people inside and outside the team. As part of the creative team, she develops exhibitions and shows at the Visiodrom.
Christian Höher, As a curator, keeps an eye on immersive developments in Europe and conceptualizes the unity of shows and exhibitions. He is also part of the Visiodrom’s creative team.
