Poster Rex – Exposition SSBA Salon Amsterdam

Autor:

Falko Gerlinghoff (Halle), Lars Harmsen (Munich) and Markus Lange (Leipzig) met for the first time when they were involved in the print-workshop, ARIAL (2012), at the University of Applied Sciences, Dortmund, Germany. Half a year later they travelled to Havana, Cuba, to collaborate on the Cuban issue of SLANTED Magazine (published 2013). Lars, and his partners at Melville Brand Design, Munich, Germany, designed posters for the exhibition MoreMoreMore (2013). Each piece was a unique print, playing with accidents that occur randomly due to the process of overprinting different screens.

 In summer 2014, Falko, Lars and Markus returned to Havana, to see the designers whom they had met the previous year. For three days they silkscreened posters, mixing Salsa with Bauhaus, and form these experiments the idea for POSTER REX was born.



POSTER REX was founded in 2014 by Lars Harmsen and Markus Lange and its objective is to offer print workshops in different cities. POSTER REX works together with artists, print shops and galleries to achieve original and unique prints, made my by hand, using analog techniques and processes.


The first workshop took place in Leipzig, Germany, in the Rainbow screen print workshop together with Frank Höhne, an illustrator from Berlin, Germany. The theme for the first workshop, and exhibition, at the Graphic bookstore MZIN, Leipzig, was ATOMIC. The next issue will take place in Amsterdam together with Edwin van Gelder from Mainstudio and the results will be exhibit in the SSBA Salon. The workshop is supported by Igepa and Pröll KG.
