Donnerstag, 22. März 2018


The BMW Luxury Excellence Pavillon is a temporary pavilion showcasing the BMW brand’s extensive expertise in contemporary luxury, innovative technologies, high-quality design and fine craftsmanship. The floating geometry of its timeless and elegant architecture has been showcased in several cities. Berlin, Toronto, Singapore and some weeks ago Kuala Lumpur have been the settings of BMW’s new approach to reach out to an urban luxury-conscious target group. Every setting has been pictured by Ken Schluchtmann with a particular attention to the urban context of the ephemeral architecture and the exhibited luxury cars.

„Norway – Architecture, Infrastructure, Landscape“ – Conference and Exhibition in Milan, Italy

Mittwoch, 22. Juni 2016

Polimi Milano

Over summer, SpazioFMG, IrisFMG gallery and showroom in Milan is hosting “Norway, Architecture, Infrastructure. Landscape. Photographs by Ken Schluchtmann”, concept by Ken Schluchtmann, curated by Luca Molinari and Alessandro Benetti in collaboration with Christiane Bürklein. A journey to Norway as a theme in keeping with the season and a unique opportunity to get to know the majestic landscapes of Norway that multi award-winning German photographer Ken Schluchtmann has immortalised, as well as the ideas of the architects behind these infrastructures and the constructions that aim to promote tourism as a means of underpinning and supporting the local economy in Norway.

Every photographic project is accompanied by a folder containing technical drawings and detailed descriptions by the architects to provide all the information needed about the project, including its actual location. The exhibition set-up underscores the idea of the journey: wooden crates with the map of Norway are used as tables for the folders and reference the itinerant nature of the National Tourist Routes.

Once more it is the image – and therefore the photographer as mediator between architect and audience – becoming the messenger of the design idea. Ken Schluchtmann shares his visual narrative of a country begging to be explored: Norway.

Code Berlin – Postercontest

Sonntag, 06. September 2009


Since 2006, Berlin is Europe’s first and only »UNESCO-City of Design«. To promote the title CREATE BERLIN was looking for Berlin’s »CODE«. It stands for »City Of Design« and also for the visual key of Berlin.

300 Designers were invited to show their work at about 1000 different places in the city. The best results will be shown in an exhibition in the Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum in Berlin from 5th of September 2009. Later the 20 finalists works will travel to Montreal, Buenos Aires, Kobe/Nagoya and Shezen – the other UNESCO Citys of Design.

DIEPHOTODESIGNER.DE and COORDINATION developed a series of three posters inscenating the multi faced design object Crystal City Mind.

Along typical scenes in the city it reflects in his surface parts of the view to all directions at the same time. This shows the variety of the city which has no unique „code“. Rather Berlin is characterised by its variety, its breaks and permanent change, without being however thereby racing or identityless.

Beside this there are two real codes in the poster: digital one and the classic navigation code to locate the places. So the lines arround the object stand for longitude and latitude and at the same time symbolise the network of the creative scene in Berlin.

On the posters one part of Crystal City Minds surface is covered with high polished steel thus acting as a mirror. It reflects the visitors and their surroundings and makes them become involved.

Photos and graphics in cooperation with Dirk Daehmlow.
