The Kunsthalle Bremen is one of Germanies leading art museums. The gallery’s private owner is to this day the Kunstverein in Bremen (the Bremen Art Association) founded by the citizens of Bremen in 1823, making it one of the oldest art associations in Germany. With more than 9,000 members, it counts today one of the strongest memberships in the Federal Republic of Germany. The collection of the Kunsthalle Bremen spans 600 years of art – from the 14th century to the present day. It covers European painting from the Middle Ages to the present, international modern art, sculptures from the 16th to the 21st century and outstanding works of media art.
The identity uses language and type as the sole carrier of messages and thus provides an effective stage for the rich visual world of the permanent collection as well as the changing exhibitions. The system follows one simple rule: one typesize for each line of text – and that’s about it.
