Architecture Matters is an international conference on the future of architecture and cities that unites relevant actors from architecture, real estate development and politics. Architecture Matters was initiated by Nadin Heinrich in 2016 and takes place for the fourth time this year.
Four different currencies were coined at “Alte Münze” Berlin between commissioning in 1936 and end of production in 2005. Only dark vaults in the spacious cellars, three chimneys and barred windows remind of the building’s past as coin factory nowadays. For around 10 years the large area between Alexanderplatz and Fischerinsel has been used for events, exhibitions and as work space.
Social and political processes have an unprecedented way of touching upon our most intimate spheres nowadays. New forms of communication transport news and images directly to our inner lifes at all times. So it goes – as is claimed by this exhibition – that the Psyche is becoming a site of the Political.
Festivities celebrating 100 years of Bauhaus opened with a week long opening festival in Berlin in January 2019. Bettina Wagner-Bergelt’s curation concept made the Akademie der Künste a flamboyant place of present and future and freed the infamous design theory from dust. With this in mind, anschlaege.de designed a campaign for the opening festival.
Pioneer sound artist Emeka Ogboh is one of the most exciting artists on the international art scene. For Kerber Verlag, we designed »Lagos Soundscapes«, a book about him that is a compendium of Ogboh’s early corpus of works (2009 – 2014) and focused on Lagos, Nigerias economic and cultural capital. Only subtle typographic differences between the bilingual French and English text-languages highlight an important part of Ogboh’s Œvre: the normalisation of a hybrid society.
What’s the form and color of socioculture? For want of a clear answer, we broke up the question and put the people first. From them emerges creativity, connection and social transformation. Our striking Corporate Design for Landesverband Soziokultur Niedersachen attracts the attention of political stakeholders, mirrors Soziokultur’s diversity and speaks to digital nomads as a new target group.
