31,2 laufende Meter – Zur Geschichte des Badischen Kunstvereins

31,2 laufende Meter zur Geschichte des Badischen Kunstvereins was an exhibition project that started in 2012 as a collaboration between the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe and Badischer Kunstverein. It retells the history of the art society, which extends over 200 years. Working in the research team, I prepared a section that showed the supra-regional collaboration of the clubs and their behave on buying and exhibiting history paintings as a collective in the 1850s. Likewise, I was involved in the design process of the exhibition furniture, which is a landscape made of MDF tables and pedestals. We decided to work with replicas of old documents, to give visitors the possibility to interact casually with the huge amount of scripts shown in the exhibition. It was important for us to find display strategies that enable visitors to explore the contents of the exhibition at different speeds and depths.
