Lucerne’s 9th International Poster Competition devotes an exhibition to Henryk Tomaszewski (1914–2005), pioneer of post-war graphic design in Poland and co-founder of the Polish School of Posters. The Poster Town exhibition retraces ten years of poster design in Lucerne. A book of the same name will also be launched by the publishing house Spector Books during the event. The festival’s programme also includes a special exhibition from our branch Weltformat Korea, featuring Korean tourist posters.
The Animated Poster exhibition addresses the issue of augmented reality and the fading boundary between analog and digital. The Grids, Tools and Swimsuits exhibition features a series of posters designed for the festival during a workshop led by Studio Neo Neo by students from the Geneva School of Art and Design.
The 20 best posters selected from the international student competition will also be exhibited in the street at Pilatusstrasse 12 in Lucerne. All award-winning designs from the 100 Best Posters – Germany, Austria, Switzerland competition will once again be exhibited. The works of St. Gallen duo Kasper-Florio, the creators of this year’s festival poster, will further complement the exhibition.inally, the programme of the Weltformat 2017 Festival will also include a bazaar of graphic works, an international forum and a variety of workshops.
