The Tolerance Poster Project

At Kunstareal München

Author: Nina Steimel

The Tolerance Poster Project by Mirko Ilić is now to be seen for the first time in Germany at Kunstareal München from March 30th to April 29th. Lars Harmsen, also Creative Director at Melville Brand Design, curated this show together with Caroline Fuchs (Curator for graphic design at Die Neue Sammlung).

At Slanted, we met Mirko back in 2015 while working on the Slanted #26—NY issue. He initiated the Tolerance Project in 2017. Since then, the exhibition has toured the world, but was never shown in Germany. Mirko invited the who’s who of graphic design to create a poster (Craig&Karl, KarlssonWilker, Ed Fella, Edel Rodriguez, Niklaus Troxler, Peter Bankov, Christoph Niemann, GunterRambow, Uwe Loesch, Art Chantry, Paula Scher, and Ariane Spanier …). Only rule: the poster should include the word Tolerance in the designers native language. Milton Glaser was the first to contribute, he also created the logo.

The show is now presented at over ten different institutions within Kunstareal, that all lend the special atmosphere and specific environment to the show. From Pinakothek der Moderne, home to Die Neue Sammlung, to the church of St. Mark that is even presenting one of four selected poster in the altar room at specific services, even in the tube of Munich … The Kunstareal München is located right at the heart of Munich and with its museums and colleges is one of Europe’s most important cultural hubs. Across an area of 500 × 500 meters it is the home of 18 museums and over 40 galleries as well as six international colleges.
