Exhibition in the Bavarian State Parliament
Opening event in the Maximilianeum with Bavarian State Parliament President Ilse Aigner and the former President of the Federal Republic of Germany Joachim Gauck. “Using the history of democracy to raise awareness for the value of our democracy today” is the aim of the Bavarian State Parliament with the project “Places of Democracy in Bavaria”. We contributed with the design of the visual identity and of a multimedia traveling exhibition. An important element of the concept was the use of graphic novels as the narrative to present various historical locations in an interesting and lively manner for a wider audience.
Flipped open, large-format, bright, and book-like exhibition elements tell realistic and lively stories about historic events, as they might have happened in one way or another. In addition to the central topic of the history of democracy, these scenes provide the viewer with interesting and enlightning facts in an entertaining way. Historical documents are presented as facsimiles, which can be browsed and read on-site using QR codes. Texts, quotes, biographies, photos and contemporary works of art, diagrams and maps, in combination with interactive media terminals, complete the view of the events. A specially designed website and an extensive catalogue document the project.
The exhibition will go on tour to selected locations across Bavaria from 2022 onwards.
