Typographic Sightseeing (G)

The lecture will focus on the graphics of the »5th berlin biennal for contemporary art«. The design is based on the letter »B« and the number »5«. These two characters are being represented by elements of images, or montages of buildings in Berlin, facades, neighbourhoods, and parks, complemented by objects from the Museum of Things. Each print product carries a different »B« and »5«. Thus, a number of items have been produced, which offer a broad range of perspectives of the city of Berlin. The lecture is about a non-conventional way of dealing with type and images.
