Posters and Graphic Design by Ott and Stein

20.03.2008 to 15.06.2008

Kunstbibliothek

The exhibition offers an insight into the diversity of graphic works which Nicolaus Ott and Bernard Stein produced during thirty works of their working together. The exhibits are characterised by a clear-cut articulation of text and image within a balanced structure of form. Script and picture are carriers of information and forms carrying meaning at the same time.

With their posters and book designs, Ott and Stein provided new impulses in graphic design, earning themselves a reputation on an international level as well. They lent a new face to numerous institutions, including the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (National Museums in Berlin).

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue listing the graphic designer's complete poster oeuvre as well as the holdings of their work at the Art Library.
