Art direction and graphic design for the Kölnischer Kunstverein from 2007 until 2012.
The renovated Brücke-building with its exhibition rooms, cinema, theatre, and studio spaces provides an ideal place to show the contemporary artistic positions that have long ceased to be limited to a specific medium of expression. The programme of exhibitions from 2007 – 2012 had been developed by Anja Nathan-Dorn and Kathrin Jentjens to utilize the architectural structure of the building, and have shown media-art, performances, concerts and films alongside one another, all on an equal footing. In the Kölnischer Kunstverein artists such as Judith Hopf, Michael Krebber, Olivier Foulon, Seth Price, Melanie Gilligan and Nora Schultz had initiated an artistic discourse on production conditions and on the notion of the artistic picture at the time.
From 2007 until 2012 all stationary of the Kölnischer Kunstverein was used as a publishing medium to distribute images from the KKV archive and time based events, for example each letterhead had a different selection of the Kölnischer Kunstverein's visual archive printed on it. The posters and invitations for the solo exhibitions were always designed in collaboration with the artist.
For group shows the images used, try not only to focus on the works but to create a relation to the curatorial concept behind each group show.
