In order to adapt academic work to fit the purpose of an exhibition, they were faced with a twofold challenge: For one, FLMH needed to reduce the material and cluster the selected aspects. At the same time, they had to make sure that the complex relationship between urban space and religion was presented in a way that would be accessible to a wide audience.
As three religious sites in each of the three cities were the centrepieces of the research, it was decided that they would also serve as the exhibition’s focal points.
Approaching the material from a visitor’s perspective, they drafted two concept papers. Based on these drafts, they developed the final exhibition concept together with Susanne Lanwerd and the research team, and subsequently proceeded to create a design for the exhibition.
