project BFK1

A visual identity for an exhibition of seven artists at Bundeskunsthalle Bonn in 2017. Each artist got a single booklet, which together form the catalog. The ­covers and exhibition posters were made in close collaboration with the artists — the artists chose the image and its placement in the typographic frame that I provided.
