Photobloc - Central Europe in photobooks

National Gallery of Art, Vilnius, Lithuania

National Gallery of Art is a modern venue full of large empty spaces mostly covered by windows or decorative walls which can neither be touched or altered. Yet the Photobloc exhibition proposed to house near one hundred precious books and even more additional material.

In order to avoid using the surrounding walls all of the exhibition elements were designed to be freestanding. As the amount of necessary tables and other furniture skyrocketed the equipment was made out of museum owned, reusable Octanorm structural elements. Different color of MDF board tabletops were used to differentiate six themes of the exhibition. Additional wall structures were designed to house photographs and also guide visitors through the maze-like halls and corridors dedicated to the Photobloc exhibition.
