Hacking an identity

NRW-Forum, Dusseldorf’s avant-garde art museum, became a part of the Kunstpalast: the oldest art museum in Düsseldorf. To mark this bond, NRW-Forum needed a new identity which demonstrated their unity with the Kunstpalast but which also retained the original NRW-Forum attitude and style. We present NRW-Forum as the new kid on a block where it’s always lived. It is the ‘wild child’ to the Kunstpalast, expressing itself by taking parts of the Kunstpalast’s branding and hacking them to form its own identity.
