Lecture by graphic designer Anette Lenz

22 May 24
Location Elisava (La Rambla, 30-32), Sala Aleix Carrió (1st floor)
Schedule At 7:30pm

German graphic designer Anette Lenz holds her lecture “À propos”, where she will share her perspective on culture, society, and life throughout her design work.

The talk, organised by the master’s of Graphic Elisava, is based on her recent solo exhibition at the Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt. In it, she contextualizes, ironizes, and comments on her own attitude towards life, transforming the museum spaces into immersive graphic worlds that make visual communication a tangible experience: sensual, poetic, and thought-provoking.

The title of both the talk and the exhibition, which means “by the way”, does not merely allude to the fact that she has something to add, a comment of her own to make, but also lays claim to relevance, to a comment made at exactly the right point and time. Anne Lenz invites us to participate in graphic design’s inventiveness and power of expression, in a sophisticated game of ever-new interrelationships between information and imagery.
