Pre-Show / Teaser
Prolog, launch, epilog – or simply Pre-Show: together with the artist Karin Sander, the architects Barbara Holzer and Tristan Kobler, created a lively welcome gesture for the Dahlem museum foyer. The installation “Identities on Display” was the result, consisting of 26 display cases. They were set up in a staggered formation, serving as glass cloakrooms. The overall impression was defined by the coats and possessions of the changing visitors, like a narrative of presence and absence, like an airlock between the exterior and the interior of the museum – and a trigger, to inspire a new way of seeing the presentation of the ethnological collections.
