Michael Riedel

A poster by German artist Michael Riedel. As Martin Kippenberger or Lawrence Weiner, Riedel’s announcements, invitation cards, and flyers are an important element of his art practice. They communicate communication, they brand branding, the archive archiving and they record recording. If you have them all, you may have everything and nothing.

User comment: “It has to have 3 ingredients: 1. image; 2. text; 3. a form (more than a sheet of paper)
It has to do something – turn, fold, flip. A key aspect is text of ranging sizes + fonts, especially the text which runs off the page, forcing you to follow it, open the poster, rotate it to see more. I want to touch it, to zoom in and out – that is, to conclude a thought and have my attention renewed by an adjacent image.” Lara Mehling
