Children and Youth Welfare Day 24/7

In a ded­i­cated area of 1,300 m2, the Berlin Sen­ate for Ed­u­ca­tion, Youth and Sci­ence to­gether with the twelve dis­tricts and spon­sors, pre­sented the free Chil­dren and Youth Wel­fare Day. To­gether with Alex Valder, Moni­teurs cre­ated the ex­hi­bi­tion de­sign for over 50 par­tic­i­pants. The ex­hi­bi­tion graph­ics were de­signed by xplicit in co­op­er­a­tion with the stu­dents of FH Dort­mund. In­di­vid­u­ally de­signed, mod­u­lar el­e­ments were com­bined to cre­ate a cityscape. The city dis­tricts pre­sented them­selves un­der the um­brella of the “round” Bran­den­burg Gate.

De­sign and im­ple­men­ta­tion of ex­hi­bi­tion stand graph­ics by Alexan­der Branczyk (xplicit) and stu­dents of the FH Dort­mund.

The concept borrowed from the typical exhibition stand concept, where the 54 participants were grouped in the exhibition area in the style of an open cityscape. In this way, the borders of the stands are almost missing and allow the visitors’ inhibitions to drop and make contact with each other. Without consciously doing so, the visitor is already in the middle of the action. Specially designed modular elements, stacked at particular heights, like tables, walls, benches, shelves and lounges create a picture of the Berlin cityscape with its districts, arranged circularly around the central landmark of the Brandenburg Gate, as an embracing gesture.

Each of the four main ar­eas, here for ex­am­ple “Child­hood”, re­ceived dif­fer­ent colour ac­cents.

Stu­dents from a Berlin school were re­spon­si­ble for stand cater­ing.
