The »Topography of Terror« is one of the most important centers for coming to terms with terror during the National Socialist era. Located on the former Gestapo grounds, it houses the permanent exhibition »Topography of Terror«, as well as thematically changing exhibitions.
Design theorist Caroline Höfler and architectural historian Matthias Karch developed the exhibition »Marschordnungen - Das Reichsparteitagsgelände in Nürnberg« in months of research. CDLX developed the visual identity for it.

Marching Orders

Gleichschritt, Ordnung, Gleichschaltung: The leitmotif of the design concept picks up on the essence of National Socialist propaganda without interpreting it. A cautious approach to a multi-dimensional theme.
