The Museum of Art and Design Hamburg owns an impressive collection of posters from the last 200 years. The exhibition »Das Plakat« (The Poster) presents a selection of 400 posters by the renowned and unknown designers. For this exhibition we designed a poster series and a catalogue. At the center of our ideation process was the aesthetics of posters glued on top of each other reminiscent of the ones we see in the public space. Fragments of the over-glued posters come through at the edges and give a hint of the richness of the history this impressive medium possesses.
