Library - Exhibition «Swiss graphic from 1935 to 1970»

15.02.2016

Enric Bricall Library has inaugurated a new exhibition on Swiss graphic from 1935 to 1970.

Swiss graphic during the 20th century was carried out in relation to the German “New Typography”, which was established by Jan Tschichold during the 20s. It proposed a new concept of graphic communication, with a dynamic aspect and a mechanic engineer. These two qualities were, in practice, an asymmetric composition, a sans-serif typeface, and it used photography and photomontage.

This exhibition collects material from the Enric Bricall Collection, which includes pieces carried out by the greatest representatives of this movement, such as the posters by Herber Mater or Richard Paul Lohse (Wir Neger in Amerika), among many others.

This exhibition will be on shown until mid-April, and the library invites you to visit this show and to find more information about the exhibited content at the blog of Enric Bricall Collection.
