Long before the profession of ‘graphic designer’ existed, people have had the need to visualise important information. Discover the who-and-why behind distinctive graphs, maps and manuals that, to this day, determine our worldview.
Art historian Sandra Rendgen did the research and based on that information, illustrator Jan Hamstra created amazing linocut posters. Both Jan and Sandra will be present to tell you all about the posters.
Participation is free.
