The Orientalist Poster

The Orientalist Poster

Author: Abderrahman Slaoui Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/06/2020

The romance of the Muslim East proved a magnet to European artists travelling in the Middle East and North Africa in the late 19th century. The orientalist painting tradition which resulted was far-fetched in its imagery but tremenduously influential, and soon spread to other art forms. One of these was poster art, executed in a boldly-coloured graphic style which swiftly captured the public imagination. At first it was the great shipping lines who advertised their cruises with innovative depictions of exotic destinations, but they were soon followed by other businesses promoting food products, exhibitions, automobiles, railways and tourism. Many of the resulting posters are now highly prized by collectors. The collection of one such enthusiast forms the basis of this book, which contains a treasury of images presenting a distinct vision of the Middle East - ranging from the casbahs and souks of North Africa (as seen by Majorelle and the leading French poster designers) to the minarets of Istanbul and Cairo, the great Mediterranean liner ports, and the crusader castles of the Levant.

Event Design Yearbook 2020/2021

Author: Katharina Stein Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 24/06/2020

The world is changing. A host of developments are impacting our lives: sustainability, values, equality, purpose, digitisation or Gen Z . However, a consideration of the majority of brand experiences gives rise to the question: Where is the change? It occurred: with COVID-19! And suddenly it was about people's lives, about our supply system and saving our and many other sectors. This is therefore a special Event Design Yearbook. It allows us to revel in projects that have been prohibited for months in 2020. It also shows experience concepts from the time before COVID-19. With all the foreseen changes after the pandemic, as described for example by Cedric Ebener in an interview, one can only speculate how the concepts presented here might look in future. Text in English and German.
