Helen Marten, James Benning, Lutz Dammbeck




As part of our art direction for Fridericianum (2013-16), we created unique materials for each of the museum’s exhibitions during the tenure of director Susanne Pfeffer. We have designed the exhibition guide, pamphlets and posters to support the three solo exhibitions by Helen Marten, Farhad Fozouni, James Benning and Lutz Dammbeck.

For Parrot Problems, her first institutional solo exhibition in Germany, Helen Marten has created numerous new works which define the physical and linguistic limits of everyday life. In Aftershock Poetry Farhad Fozouni drawa on Persian traditions, such as miniatures, calligraphy and arts & crafts. In addition, works by Benning and Dammbeck find a starting point for embarking on critical reflections on technological change. To guide the viewers through the three shows, we designed an exhibition guide that contains captions and layout diagrams, liberating the exhibition space from notations.
