The new exhibition concept of the BFF Berlin

The annual exhibition BFF Triebwerk of the Professional Association of Freelance Photographers and Film Designers Berlin took place from October 8 to November 7, 2015 as part of the "Designmeile Berlin" at Bikini Berlin on almost 800 m². Extraordinary photographs by 54 photographers in equally extraordinary spaces. The collaborative exhibition was conceived and realized by Klaus Mellenthin, Jörg Steck and Valentin Angerer.

Extraordinary premises

The Bikini-Haus belongs to a building complex that was erected with the background of establishing the clothing industry in Berlin.

Even today, the focus is still on clothing. A "shopping mall". It got its unusual name from the people of Berlin, who thought of young and daring swimwear when they saw the second floor.

Exhibition Series & Wildcard

This exhibition series stopped in Berlin and Leipzig, among other places. The special features were, for example, the exciting hanging of the picture frames - free-floating against each other in the room. The basic element was screwed together with fixed hangers to ensure safe hanging. The BFF Wildcard was an exhibition of a special kind. The photographs of 90 photographers were shown at the same time in three different locations.

The exhibits were only visible on the smartphone. This virtual exhibition was meant to be a provocation: For one would only see the world through mobile devices.
