Building images and memory patterns
PROJECT Exhibition DESIGN Exhibition design / book design / invitation cards / poster CLIENT Mies van der Rohe Haus, Berlin / Germany
Naroska designed an exhibition, the poster and the accompanying book for the exhibition „Images and memory patterns" for the Mies van der Rohe Haus. In the intermediate area of architecture and art, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe made three proposals for a modern culture of memory. Culture of Remembrance. With the project of the Bismarck Monument (1910), the Revolution Monument (1926) and the design for a memorial in the Neue Wache (1930), the architect specified spatial worlds of memory between personal and collective image-making. Mies was a form inventor, but even more than pure form, he explored the relationship between space and spirit. His monument projects, whether destroyed or never built, were groundbreaking designs that are now only preserved in image. The exhibition was curated by Wita Noack and Simon Beringer.
