Author: Julia Kahl

In collaboration with the association 100 Beste Plakate e. V. , the Kunstbibliothek (Art Library) is presenting the 100 best posters of the past year from Germany, Austria and Switzerland for the 14th time. The exhibition (16.06.–05.07.20) provides a cross-section of current graphic design, including a number of surprises. Admission is free during the three-week presentation in the lobby of the Berlin Kulturforum.

Bumblebee Pills? Pineapple Bunnies? Banana Fingers?
Bumblebee pills? Pineapple bunnies? Banana fingers? Who says innovative graphic design can’t have surrealistic moments? The 100 best posters of 2019 stand out for their highly inventive pictorial compositions, which are often laced with humour. Photography is once again increasingly being used in many exciting ways, while typographical experiments remain a constant source of fascination.

2,247 Posters by 684 Designers
For this year’s competition, 100 beste Plakate Deutschland Österreich Schweiz (The 100 Best Posters from Germany, Austria and Switzerland), 2,247 posters were submitted by 684 designers. A jury, consisting of Julia Kahl (Slanted, Karlsruhe, Germany, chairperson), Michel Bouvet (Paris, France), Benjamin Buchegger (Studio Beton, Vienna, Austria), Götz Gramlich (gggrafik, Heidelberg, Germany) and Isabel Seiffert (Offshore Studio, Zurich, Switzerland), chose the finalists. Following the presentation of the winning designs in Berlin, an event accompanied by an annual publication, the exhibition will travel to Essen, Vienna, Zurich and other venues.

The 100 Best Posters competition was launched 50 years ago in East Germany. After 1989 it initially continued as a Germany-wide contest, subsequently expanding to encompass the German-speaking countries of Germany, Austria and Switzerland for the last 18 years. Each year the Kulturforum hosts the opening exhibition of the exceptional posters selected by the jury.

Here’s an overview of the 100 winning posters 100-beste-plakate.de.
