The exhibition comprises 13 areas, including a variety of valuable poster designs, image collages and letter cutout experiments from a period of over 30 years. The featured works will show the determination of Weingart in breaking the rules of traditional typesetting and transforming this hallmark of Swiss typography into a fun and abstract form of expression.
