„schriftkulturen | type cultures”


the lecture: type for peace … would the world be a happier place if typography and graphic design would be a widely popular form of entertainment or worship, instead of just being the obsession of a mildly happy few? we examine the possibilities of type as a strategy for (cultural) survival focusing on local type projects from holland, iran, germany, denmark, tobago, egypt.
