ANSCHLAG – BERLIN
13. May – 22. May 2016
Direktorenhaus Berlin, Am Krögel 2
Vernissage at May 13th, 8pm.
»Anschlag Berlin – Zeitgeistmedium Plakat« in Berlin.
After its successful first exhibition at the Weltformat Festival in Luzern, the design initiative ANSCHLAG BERLIN shows its works at the Direktorenhaus Berlin.
The exhibition provides an overview of contemporary poster design in Berlin. Over 100 posters by newcomers as well as renowned design studios such as Cyan, LSD, HeSign, Patrick Thomas, Ruddigkeit, Ariane Spanier, Studio Laucke Siebein, m23, Eike König and many others will be on display.
With this exhibition, the curators Fons Hickmann and Sven-Lindhorst Emme, both internationally renowned poster designers, present a wide spectrum of artistic work crossing the imaginary boundary between art and design. After Luzern and Berlin, the exhibition will be held in China next year.
»In Berlin, the NEW comes into the world. Posters are the perfect medium to communicate the Zeitgeist.« One can speak of a »Berlin School« in poster design, that has been shaping the aesthetics of visual culture for the past 100 years – and that still influences popular culture, design and art today. The poster established itself as an independent art medium.
The catalogue »Anschlag Berlin« was published by Seltmann+Söhne. The website www.anschlag-berlin.de will soon be launched.
