Götz Gramlich, born in 1974 in Heidelberg, earned his diploma in Communication Design from the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences.

During the festival, selected posters are displayed in public spaces, transforming these areas into platforms for visual protest. This initiative underscores Gramlich’s belief in the power of posters to effect change and his dedication to political and social causes.

Visitors will experience the breadth of his designs, characterized by eclectic styles and a deep exploration of techniques and imagery. This exhibition not only celebrates his artistic achievements but also his ongoing commitment to cultural and social issues through graphic design.
