Posters for Exhibitions : Poster Collection 30
Self-Promotion, the 30th edition of the Poster Collection series, features a compilation of posters the Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich has commissioned over the years to promote their own exhibitions. Most of them were designed by Swiss designers, though there are some exceptions by international artists, giving the collection a global profile.
Ever since the 1910s Zurich Kunstgewerbemuseum, or Museum of Arts & Crafts - which was founded in 1875 and is known today as the Museum fur Gestaltung Zurich - has been focussing on producing high-quality posters to promote its exhibitions.
This collection ranges from the pictorial scenes of the early days to the graphic and typographic solutions of the 1920s, the Swiss Style posters of the early 20th century and the more playful examples of recent years.
