Ulmer Weitblick

Date: 01/2014 – 01/2016

Location: City Hall Ulm

Client: City of Ulm, Department for Culture

The exhibition series “Striving for perspective. The jubilee years of the Ulm Minster, 1877–2015” in the Stadthaus Ulm will coincide with the 125th anniversary of the highest church spire in the world – the spire of the Ulm Minster.

The jubilee was entitled “Ulmer Weitblick” [A Perspective on Ulm], in accordance with the Ulm concept of building high to gain greater perspective. We take a look back at the past in six stages: How did the people of Ulm celebrate the Minster in the past, and its spire, which was added later?

The stages in the exhibition show that very different aspects of the Minster’s history were highlighted at different times. Over the course of history, the spire was not seen as a fixed, timeless monolith, but as a very changeable presence in the heart of the city of Ulm.

Together with curator Catherine Nichols and designer Felix Nolze, molitor is developing the exhibition concept and will then take over the design, planning, realisation and project management. With a simple but effective design, the space in the Stadthaus will be transformed into a festive marquee for a coherent look on a tight budget.
