Digesting Design

Create Berlin Exhibition

Posted in Exhibitions by Paul on January 6, 2009


This evening I went to the Temporary Kunsthalle to go to the Create Berlin, ‘20 Years Since the Fall of the Wall – Free Space‘ exhibition. Fellow designer at Pentagram, Josephine Rank and her collaborators Mijuly & Ca were in the exhibition so I got an invite from that. The Mayor of Berlin and several other important figures were in attendance this evening, so the place was packed out, I could just about squeeze by everyone to see the work.

The clue is in the name, but all pieces on display were ideas and interpretations around the Berlin Wall. All work was in different mediums and I especially liked the 3-D (with glasses provided) typographic piece of the TV Tower, the football scarves, the projections and information about healthcare in Berlin and Josephine and her team’s beds, which can be seen below (I couldn’t quite get as good a picture because it was so busy)


This was the exhibition that I missed back in the summer when it was on in Brick Lane as part of Design Week, so I’m glad I managed to take a look at it a second time around. I also picked up a lovely set of postcards of the exhibition in a neatly packaged foil envelope! See the rest of the photos on my Flickr page here.
