The former „Reichskunstwart“ Edwin Redslob, tried in his unique position to transfer the principles of modern design to a national appearance. From the coat of arms, through banknotes and right up to postage stamps – everything was redefined in terms of a parliamentary democracy to differentiate the whole appearance from the former empire.
The Werkbundarchiv – Museum der Dinge explores Redslob’s estate to trace the artistic and political decision-making processes, examining the conditions and necessities of his time and ours.
What purposes are served by national emblems such as the eagle? What are their meanings for us and our society? Our Team was responsible for the visual identity of the Exhibition „Die Demokratie und ihre Adler“ and designed a variety of printed media.
