Guiding system for documenta 12

The guiding system developed by Vier5 for
documenta 12 distinguishes between two systems,
the outer guiding system and the inner guiding
system.
The outer guiding system, as it is understood by
Vier5, has several levels and is viewed as a structure
that can be divided into an informative, tangible and
an abstract area:
On the one hand it is to be a functioning system that
fulfils the visitors’ primary wishes and leads them
through the city to the desired places. This form is
directly tied to the venue of the exhibition and to its
duration.
On the other hand the guiding system, as it is grasped
by Vier5, has another, uncontrollable and invisible
function. It is meant to span a network and carry the
aims and thoughts of the show to the outside,
detached from the place and time of the exhibition.
It is to evade a primary functionality.
These two poles that are mutually dependent form
the basis for the development of five central elements
that represent the framework of the outer guiding
system.

1. OUTER GUIDING SYSTEM

2. INNER GUIDING SYSTEM
