The Spiral of Symbols
Centerpiece of the exhibition at Kunst-Station Sankt Peter in Cologne was a gigantic spiral of symbols uniting the work developed across the globe. In combination with the little book of symbols, visitors were able to decode the signs while walking along the circles. Cologne, Summer 2014.




The FORTY FIVE SYMBOLS group published a book for the exhibition in Cologne 2014. It introduces 45 projects of 45 symbols created by students from Cologne, New York, Bogotá, Hong Kong, Falmouth and Beirut.
