The Whole Life

The Whole Life. Archives & Imaginaries

The exhibition and congress at Haus der Kulturen der Welt reflects on archives as places of counter-narratives and illuminates the connections between archives and society.

The program asks how archives influence social realities and whether they can enable alternative ideas of the future. Artists and scientists develop experimental formats for alternative narrative forms and research strategies. With works by Bini Adamczak, Nathalie Anguezomo Mba Bikoro, Archive außer sich, Chto Delat, Tony Cokes, Assaf Gruber, Mobile Akademie Berlin, Olaf Nicolai and Nina Akhvlediani.

We did the graphic design for the exhibition and congress program. The graphic design for the exhibition and congress program visualizes the connections between the different ideas and concepts in an open, yet cohesive system.
