Poster Chil­dren

Where Berlin - - MUSEUMS & GALLERIES -

The Bröhan Mu­seum (p. 38) is known for its col­lec­tion of Art Nou­veau, art deco, and Berlin Se­ces­sion works, which are defin­ing art move­ments of the late 19th and early 20th cen­turies. Aside from this fo­cus, the mu­seum’s Black­box se­ries also high­lights graphic de­sign­ers and pho­tog­ra­phy. Black­box’s sec­ond in­stall­ment fea­tures Gün­ther Kieser, one of Ger­many’s most pro­lific graphic de­sign­ers. Kieser is famed for his posters cre­ated for jazz and rock con­certs, and his ven­er­a­ble work in­cludes the psy­che­delic poster of Jimi Hen­drix with ca­bles grow­ing out of his hair, as well as the poster of the col­or­ful gri­mac­ing skull for the Grate­ful Dead. Al­though Kieser is now in re­tire­ment, he made an ex­cep­tion for the mu­seum to de­sign the pro­mo­tional poster for Kieser, Posters, which runs un­til 23 July.
