Opening Politie-Polizei in Berlin

Opening Politie-Polizei-Carabi... in Berlin


On 8 October the exhibition Politie-Polizei-Carabi... will open in the Internationales Design Zentrum (IDZ) in Berlin, with a discussion on the idea of one visual identity for the police in Europe. The Hague based design agency Ontwerpwerk and Berlin based design agency Fuenfwerken have worked on the issue of an identity for a (not yet existing) European police force. Their ideas have been visualized on cars. These designs will be discussed by Erik Spiekermann and Jerszy Seymour moderated by Lucas Verweij.

Programme (spoken language German and English):
18.30 Doors open
19.00 Welcome by Cornelia Horsch (director IDZ) and Ed Annink (intendant The Hague Design and Government), presentations by Priska Wollein (Fuenfwerken) and Pieter Boddaert (Ontwerpwerk)
