The “rien à signaler” POSTER cites Bauhaus’s 1923 exhibit in Weimar, Germany. Founded by architect Walter Gropius in 1919, the school gathered multiple crafts and fine arts disciplines, allowing students to be multifaceted and to draw inspiration from every possible form of art.
In 1923, Gropius introduced the ”Staatliches Bauhaus Ausstellung“ exhibition with conferences, concerts and performances. For this occasion, the Haus am Horn house was built according to the school’s principles: the form follows function.The exhibition was supported by a strong communication established by the Bauhaus members: postcards, posters, catalogs... The main purpose of the event, other than promoting the school was to encourage artists and artisans to work together.
The poster was designed in a diagonal aesthetic, following typographer Joost Schmidt’s use of circle and square visuals along with bold primary colors, highlighting both the industrial and experimental approach of the institute.
