Jan Tschichold and the New Typography: Graphic Design between the World Wars

Please join us for a private after-hours tour with Paul Stirton (MA 1976), Associate Professor at the Bard Graduate Center, for a tour of his exhibition celebrating Jan Tschichold (1902–1974). Tschichold, a prolific designer, writer, and theorist, stood at the forefront of a revolution in visual culture in the 1920s. His designs were applied to everyday graphics, from film posters to business cards, and book jackets to commercial invoices.  The exhibition features works by Jan Tschichold, Kurt Schwitters, El Lissitzky, Aleksandr Rodchenko, László Moholy-Nagy, Max Burchartz, Walter Dexel, Johannes Molzahn, Piet Zwart, and others.
