The Lucerne Poster Festival has dedicated it’s eighth event to the provocative German poster designer and publisher, Klaus Staeck (b. 1938). Law suits were filed against 41 of his posters, but none of the complaints were upheld. For the first time, a comprehensive exhibition is dedicated to digital and moving poster formats at this festival. The festival continues with Everyda(y)ta where the challenge of data visualization through posters is dealt with. The festival programme further extends through a review of the tradition of typographical posters in Switzerland. For the first time, Weltformat is moving away the city. In the context of the opening of the new location of the School of Art and Design at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, students are showcasing their posters for the Swiss Jazz Festival. In the final round, 20 posters have the chance to win the international student competition on the theme of Original & Copy. There will be another opportunity to see the winners of the 100 Best Posters – Germany Austria Switzerland. Other exhibitions take a look at the online platform Blank Poster, Germany’s Year of Dance 2016 and word from Annik Troxler, the designer of this year’s festival poster.
