The catalogue brings together an overview of ambitious, contemporary posters from in Berlin working designers. Following the current Zeitgeist in design and in particular from design in Berlin, 59 posters by newcomers and renowned design studios such as Cyan, LSD, HeSign, EPS51, Ruddigkeit, Ariane Spanier, Fons Hickmann m23, Surface and many others will be on display.
With this exhibition the curators, Fons Hickmann and Sven-Lindhorst Emme, both self-renowned poster designer, want to project the wide range of artistic works that arise in Berlin. The selection of posters are those that exceed an imaginary border between design and art. »In Berlin, the New comes into the world. Especially the poster as Zeitgeist medium demonstrates this commendable.« Berlin has long been a creative workhorse, influencial, trendsetting and always awake. All of this can be found in every days life, which is characterized by creative influences and therefore turns it’s affects on design. One can speak of a “Berlin School” for the poster, that shapes the aesthetics of the visual culture for the last 100 years – and that far beyond Berlin.
The exhibition will be shown at »Anschlag« from 26.9. until 4.10. at Weltformat 15, Poster Festival Lucerne.
