Schwarz & Weiss / Black & White

Poster Collection 08

While people tend to assume that the graphic design world will be brightly colored, this compilation of international posters dating from the last forty years is out to prove that there is an advantage to be hard in working without color. Morphological investigation of the Poster Collection's stock has brought to light a surprising variety of approaches where the creative will to exploit the color of the paper and the black of the ink alone is the driving force behind the posters succinct statement. Typical examples come from designers like AG Fronzoni, Werner Jeker, James Victore or Büro Destruct. The work ranges from "coolness" to modernist ascetism, from the political manifesto to poetic abstraction.

With an essay by Lars Müller and Bettina Richter.
