We are thrilled that our 2020 poster “#whiteliesmatter” is currently on view as part of the exhibit “New! Newer! Newly!” at Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg. Thank you again to the 75 backers who helped Kickstart this agitprop poster (and two others) two summers ago!
Curator Dr. Julia Meer writes: “The Graphics and Poster Collection has grown continuously over the past 150 years and now encompasses some 400,000 works. This presentation focuses on new acquisitions and gifts that have recently entered the collection. They primarily consist of contemporary pieces, in recognition of the museum’s essential role in documenting current developments in design and preserving related artifacts for future generations. We collect designs that are noteworthy—due to their origin, mode of production, aesthetics or thematic content. Often ephemeral in nature, these products are closely related to the spirit of the times and thus simultaneously bear witness to political and social events and changes.”
