The multimedia exhibition “Mythos Germania – Vision und Verbrechen” (The Germania Myth –Vision and Crime) sheds light on architecture and urban planning in Nazi Berlin and analyses their ideological objectives and criminal consequences. Furthermore, the exhibition deconstructs legends and clichés surrounding the “world capital Germania”.
The design including plotting tables, desk lamps and large-sized drawers is inspired by the atmosphere of a planning agency. The central design theme consciously breaks with the megalomania of Hitler and Speer, deconstructing these visions as phantasies and hubris. This setting is contrasted with a large-sized wall depicting the crimes through LED pictures and exhibits in connection with the committed atrocities.
