History

The prototype of Dialogue in Silence was called “Schattensprache”. Focusing on silent communication it was presented for the first time 1998 in Frankfurt. Orna Cohen and Andreas Heinecke then developed this model further into the large exhibition format of today. In 2003 they introduced the new concept with great success to the public in Paris at the “Cité des Sciences et l’Industrie”. In 2006 the exhibition was established as first permanent exhibition at the Children’s Museum in Holon, Israel. In 2008 and 2009 Mexico hosted the exhibition at the Children Museum in Papalote. In Germany, the Museum für Kommunikation in Frankfurt presented the exhibition in 2010 and 2011. So did the DASA Museum in Dortmund in 2009. In September 2014 Dialogue in Silence became the second permanent exhibition at the Hamburg Dialogue in the Dark hub. In 2015, the exhibition Dialogue in Silence is planned to become a permanent exhibition at the Istanbul Dialogue hub. Another prominent development is happening with the corporate learning workshops. Shanghai and other Dialogue hubs successfully offer them as corporate learning tool. All Dialogue in Silence exhibitions and corporate learning workshops are handled by Dialogue Social Enterprise GmbH, Hamburg.
