Auditions For An Unwritten Opera

The identity for the exhibition Auditions For An Unwritten OperaAround the works by Mutlu Çerkez at Kunsthalle Baden-Baden serves as a tribute to the works of the artist.

 

When ascending the stairs to the exhibition space, one finds the key visual design element that we developed in reference to Çerkez’s typographical works, 26980 30 JULY 2038 and 26980 30 JULY 2038, both made in 1994.

Many artworks by Mutlu Çerkez are text based and graphical, which we took into consideration while creating the design.

The keyvisual is adapted to banners, wall texts, posters and various merchandise items.

Key works by Çerkez are brought into dialogue with contemporary and historical pieces from different artistic positions. In an experimental manner, the curatorial exhibition concept enables, on the one hand, diverse insights into conceptual art since the 1960s, and on the other, emotions—from joy to grief—allowing them to resound, in their gradations, throughout the rooms.
