Wednesdays at the MAK: 100 Best Posters 22 (in German)

The 100 BEST POSTERS 22: Germany Austria Switzerland competition is one of the foremost trendsetters in contemporary poster design. That the latter involves significantly more than uploading visual content onto public billboards is once more demonstrated by this year’s exhibition series of the 100 Best.

A veritable gamut of typographical concepts awaits the visitor, from perfectly spaced typeface to a complete disregard of all typographical tenets. The spectrum ranges from revitalized typewriter scripts, to spidery handwriting, to experimental approaches, for example incorporating artificial intelligence into the design process. In their design and layout, the scripts recall the Concrete Poetry of the Vienna Group: letters no longer signify; they are experienced as images. Against all expectations, this year there is a noticeable dearth of politically motivated entries.

These dialogue-focused tours through current exhibitions or on collection-specific themes are complemented and enhanced by further discussion over coffee in the MAK’s Salonplafond. For many a tale is brought into the MAK by its visitors, thus enriching our tours. Just come by on a Wednesday!

Language: The tour is held in German.
