THE POP-UP EXHIBITION AT BER
Since October 31, 2020 the time has finally come. BER opens its doors to visitors for the pop-up exhibition “The Space of Flying”. In Terminal 1, visitors are guided through the history of flying in Berlin and Brandenburg. In cooperation with Kulturprojekte Berlin we developed the exhibition design, which is based on four historical themes.
- “Airworld” – as an alleged male domain
- “War and Flying” – What is the connection?
- “East-West Conflict in Aviation”
- “The importance of airports in urban history”
The themes are presented on wave-like walls, on Plexiglas panels or with objects on the typical baggage carousel. Lines on the floor guide visitors and help with orientation. In the middle is the so-called BER room. Throughout the exhibition, it was important to us to create an airport aesthetic using familiar graphic elements such as arrows or pictograms. The classic DIN font, which is certainly known to many of the beholder’s eyes, also underlines this charm. The pictograms have once again got their own importance. So we developed two sets of pictograms. One for all seven airports and airfields and the other for special BER objects. The color purple of the BER room is derived from the BER corporate design. We have also chosen yellow because it symbolizes “construction site”.
