Typotektur Poster Collection 05: Typotektur by Andres Janser, Felix Studinka
Typotektur takes a look at posters from various countries and periods that share a special feature of typography: the tendency to break out of the two-dimensional space of lettering and establish hybrid links with architecture. Letters, words, and entire sentences form architectural figures that can be read both as pictures and as words. The playful handling of typography has led to an exhilarating wealth of variations in the history of poster art. Starting with contemporary poster design, the widely divergent strands of development in the architectural treatment of lettering are here traced back in time through the 20th century.

One of the pioneers and leading exponents of Pop Art, Robert Rauschenberg has experimented with and often blurred the boundaries between a variety of media, such as painting, object art, photography, and print. His mature poster work from the 1970's onwards displays a dynamic technique of composition, often addressing the subject in a surprising, oblique manner. Rauschenberg employs a collage principle that lends and unusual irony to everyday images and photographs.
