Process and Politics: Posters for a Changing World (February 26 - August 23, 2020)

Born out of a need for clear communication in a changing world, posters from our exhibitions The Sleeping Giant: Posters and the Chinese Economy and The Swiss Grid allow us, through inquiry-based tours, to explore these ephemeral time capsules of post-war Switzerland and over 100 years of economic development in China.

In our ProcessLAB, students will collaborate in small groups to imagine posters inspired by the idealism in the propaganda of The Sleeping Giant mixed with the iconic grids and typographic elements of The Swiss Grid.
