LANGESOMMER: Hebräische Kalligrafie

Das hebräische Alef-bet ist das Alphabet des antiken und modernen Hebräisch und eines der ältesten noch verwendeten. In Zusammenarbeit mit dem Jüdischen Museum Berlin gab der Workshop von LANGESOMMER Einblicke in die hebräische Kalligrafie und Schrift. Gemeinsam mit Amichai Green vom Jüdischen Museum, lernten die TeilnehmerInnen, hebräische Buchstaben mit einer Feder zu schreiben und damit Duktus und Schönheit der hebräischen Kalligrafie kennenzulernen.

Roger Law: The Art of Theft

Admittedly I was only vaguely familiar with Roger Law‘s work before attending his presentation at TYPO; hazy memories from my childhood of his rubbery-faced caricatures of politicians gesticulating wildly at me from my TV set. His presentation would be a retrospective of his work in parallel to that of other artists which had not only influenced him but who he had heavily referenced, or even stole from, in order to create his own work. It would be this concept of theft vs. true originality, which resonates so deeply with all artists and designers, that would be at the core of his thought-provoking, beautiful and often amusing look back at some of his most popular work.
