ON—TYPE

Exhibition at Bauhaus Archive Berlin
Posted by Gestalten—05/2013

The current show at Bauhaus Archive reveals why the discourse on historic and contemporary type is not only interesting to design experts.

Cooperating with the Gutenberg Museum and the FH Mainz/Designlabor Gutenberg, the Bauhaus Archive presents milestones in type design from more than 100 years—ranging from Bauhaus and Swiss Typography up to postmodern developments. Central figures and debates in the history of typography, as well as major theories, manifestos, and stocktaking accounts on the topic are introduced in this exhibition. Questions about legibility, digitization, and lowercase letter writing are illustrated and discussed.

As an interactive exhibition, ON—TYPE allows visitors to experiment with virtual applications and compile their individual catalogs with different selections of type samples.

ON—TYPE opens daily, except for Tuesdays, 10 AM – 5PM.
