The German colour DIN 5023 for ink boxes provides twelve standardized colours in one school ink box. As part of the Stadtschreiber:innenprojekt* 2021 by studierendenWERKs BERLIN, Momo Bera wrote a total of twelve lyrical texts in which she deals with the idea of a standardized paintbrush, as well as fixed spectrums of colour and their perceptions.

These texts provide clues for a more in-depth artistic examination of the wide range of issues that come with standardization. The artists Hannah Tharann, Ben Biller, Lilli Falzoi and Momo Bera are presenting the preliminary findings of their work in the exhibition DIN 5023, where they think through and differentiate their underlying initial questions. In this sense, DIN 5023 stands as a symbol for norms, standards and values and the question of how these, consciously and unconsciously, shape our perception.

In a zine created parallel to the exhibition, fragments of Momo Bera's inspirational texts appear, accompanied by a shared collection of visual associations.

DIN 5023 was withdrawn in 2018 without replacement. (Among other reasons, there was no longer any need for it.)
