In Summer 2017 Lars Harmsen and Markus Lange went on tour and printed silkscreen posters with a bunch of artists from Poland, working with local artists in Athens, Istanbul, Moscow and Kiev. You can order the two limited publications (full-color 114 pages / black & white 108 pages = 222 pages) and four DIN A3 Riso prints for 30,– Euro—coming along in a nicely designed slipcase. Only 200 copies will be printed.

POSTER REX was founded in 2014 by the graphic designers Lars Harmsen (Munich) and Markus Lange (Leipzig) from Studio Farn. For each session, they invite an artist to create unique posters, produced in different silkscreen workshops around the globe. All posters are silkscreen printed by hand or with other digital or analog techniques. Each session has its own topic. POSTER REX also offers workshops for students. By now, the collection counts over 1,500 unique posters. A set of posters have been curated for exhibitions.
