On occasion of the Spring Gallery Tour, Michael Grzesiak, gallery director of b2_ from 2007 till 2012, developed with Canvas Bar a piece of furniture designed for communication in the gallery space. The b2_ artists used this piece to show publications, answer questions and have conversations.

Alongside the exhibition the jubilee publication to be b2 is released (designed by Anna Lena von Heldorff). It combines texts from Oliver Kossack, Tina Schulz, Anke Dyes, Arne Linde, Michael Grzesiak, Barbara Steiner and Maik Schlüter – experts and fans from b2_. It shows exhibition views, remembering the last ten years of b2_ and the transformation of the space.

The graphic designers group PaMeLa, that made the title design, arranged all exhibition titles on one wall, starting from the opening in 2005 till the exhibition that is on show today.
