Event Description

Have you ever wondered why there are so many styles of letters? What objective lies beneath these different typographic styles?

Alliance Française de Bangkok together with the Goethe Institute, Japan Foundation and Cadson Demak will hold the “Schrift in form Bis” exhibition on at Alliance française’s library from August 19 to October 31. Admission is free.

Explore various typographic styles and their artistic variations through the “Schrift in form Bis” exhibition that highlights more than 50 artworks from 8 countries worldwide. The artworks will be randomly displayed and rotated every 2 weeks, which allows you to visit the show several times and still get to see new artworks. Furthermore, there will be a multi-media presentation showcasing the experimental work on typographic design.

Shown here are new artworks created especially for the Bangkok International Typographic Symposium combined with work from the 2008 major type design exhibition “Schrift in Form” at Klingspor Museum Offenbach, Germany.

The “Schrift in form Bis” exhibition will showcase a different view of letters in everyday life. These often overlooked characters are highlighted by major graphic design and typography artists such as Tim Ahrens, Dan Reynolds and Edouardo Manso. ABC aficionados don’t miss this!
