Museum für Gestaltung Zürich holds one of the world’s most important archives of posters. With its current exhibition, ‘Poster Stories’, they are featuring around 80 posters, which provide insight into the immense collection’s thematic, geographical and historical scope.
The exhibition seeks to celebrate the impressive stylistic diversity this medium offers. Icons line up alongside rediscoveries, from early painterly and narrative posters through to purely typographic posters, which rely solely on expressive lettering, to artistic experiments with photography and recent designs using digital techniques.
Together, they illustrate a wide variety of design approaches and convey the great innovative power of poster culture.
Until 31st December 2019
