In the rooms of De Ateliers, thousands of years will be explored through work from the previous two years at the Werkplaats Typografie.
Werkplaats Typografie End of Year Show 2012 presents the work produced in the past two years at the graphic design Master programme Werkplaats Typografie / ArtEZ Institute of the Arts and is arranged chronologically on a timeline. Work is given a date according to what it carries with it in terms of content, form or associative references. The timeline is fictional.
The exhibition includes an overview of what the participants of the Werkplaats Typografie use as part of their on-going research and studio practice. The captions will lead you through sixteen different histories gathered, for two days, as an accumulating plateau of books, spells, web-pages, posters, songs, interventions, failures, moving images and improbable objects. This is a graphic design exhibition.
