Poster House is thrilled to host Jeremy Aynsley for a discussion that will consider Julius Klinger’s remarkable range of posters, illustrations and graphic design. The focus will explore the designer’s great skill in rendering identities through the representation. These range from portraying individual personalities, cultural events, commercial enterprises and industrial manufacturers, to initiating a graphic identity for the city of Vienna in the 1920s. Klinger’s life and work raise important questions about the question of identity in the modern world that shed light on the times in which he lived while carrying significant resonances for us today.

Jeremy Aynsley is Professor of Design History at the University of Brighton, UK where he is founding director of the Centre for Design History. His research, writing and curating have focused on modernism and design. Publications include Graphic Design in Germany, 1890-1945 (2000) and Designing Modern Germany (2008) as well as Julius Klinger: Posters for a Modern Age (2017). In 2017, he was guest curator of the Wolfsonian exhibition of the same title.

This virtual event will be hosted on Zoom with attendees cameras off. Closed Captioning will be provided. Questions about access? Please email Salvador Muñoz, Public Programs Manager, at Salvador@posterhouse.org

Julius Klinger: Posters for a Modern Age comes to Poster House from The Wolfsonian–Florida International University in Miami Beach, FL.
