»BERLIN Mural«
from Chris Campe and Merle Michaelis

Chris Campe and Merle Michaelis paint the word »Berlin« on the floor, walls and ceiling. Each S-Bahn arch has an area of around 150 square meters, the vaults are over four and a half meters high – the painted letters will be so large that they dissolve into an abstract black and white stripe pattern and can only be recognized as writing at second glance.

THE BUCHSTABENMUSEUM

Preservation and documentation of letters
The Buchstabenmuseum is the first museum in the world to collect letterforms from public spaces and display them as part of urban history. We preserve and document three-dimensional letters and signage, and their history, as well as providing information about their origins and construction. Our collection has captured the imagination of visitors from all around the world for over 10 years. Hundreds of letters have been saved from being battered by the elements or ending up on the scrap heap. A selection of what we offer can be found under » COLLECTION
