From romanticism into the future

The German Romanticism Museum, the Senckenberg Nature Museum in Frankfurt and the Museum Sinclair-Haus in Bad Homburg are cooperating on a major exhibition project. The exhibition combines approaches from science and art as well as ecology and everyday life. Exhibits from the arts, cultural and forestry history and the natural sciences span the period from Romanticism to the future. Around 1800, an understanding of nature emerged that views man and nature in interaction, which is highly topical today against the backdrop of climate and biodiversity crises.


The image of the forest is strongly characterized by what you see: Leaves, branches, trunks. The underlying system of roots, lichens and fungi is not perceived. Nevertheless, it is essential and its complexity is almost impossible to assess. Abstract roots form a complex and dense structure on the key visual, and the striking typography is interwoven with it.

We developed all communication media for the exhibition, including flags, banners, flyers, social media formats, advertisements and animations.

In collaboration with Luka Löhner.

Exhibition graphics

The exhibition graphics link the – very different – exhibitions of the three museums. There is a clear color and typography concept that nevertheless responds flexibly to the different exhibition situations. The exhibition is complemented by infographics that provide in-depth information on specific topics, such as the development of forests over the course of geological history or fact checks on lichens.

The exhibition architecture is designed by Raumlabor and lfm2.


We have also designed a publication to accompany the exhibition. The publication is structured like a magazine and brings together historical and contemporary texts, artistic works and scientific artifacts, thus offering further insight into the exhibition and its background. It is printed on recycled paper and underlines the exploratory nature of the exhibition. The publication is available directly from the institutions.
