On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II the German-Russian Museum Berlin-Karlshorst initiated the temporary exhibition ”Germany-Russia, from confrontation to cooperation” to be exhibited at Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin 2015. The exhibition gives an insight into German-Russian relations since 1945 and approaches the subject through a fragmentary stream that high light particular milestones through out the history. Together with the Berlin architects büroberlin and the media designers schnellebuntebilder we were invited to develop a multidimensional exhibition concept and design to frame the theme and topic in the best suitable way.
The history of German-Russian relations are neither linear nor continuously. The combination of graphic design and architecture emphasize and symbolize the diverse political and cultural dynamics between the two nations. Featured milestones in the history evolve as three-dimensional volumes growing out from the wall graphics. Through implementation of vividness in the entire exhibition design we gave some of the more central exhibits, letters and contracts, a framework that allures curiosity and attraction.
