Moving Types – Letters in motion.
A retrospective from the beginnings of film until today.

First augmented exhibition catalogue with ‘built-in cinema’

Prof. Anja Stöffler, Prof. Ralf Dringenberg & Dr. Annette Ludwig

 Moving Types – Letters in Motion’ reflected the use of ‘writing on the move’ from the beginnings of film to the present day, in which mobile media systems are transforming the design and reading of writing into a completely new, mobile, networked, multi-sensory exchange of information. In a retrospective over 300 historical and current media formats will be presented by international artists, filmmakers and designers, including Muriel Cooper, Paul Jeffrey Sharits, Étienne Robial, Ludovic Houplain, Gary Hill, David Small, Alex Gopher and Matthias Zentner. The catalogue presents, among other things, the artistic habillages of the ARTE theme nights, music videos from Bob Dylan to Soko, station logos of ARTE, Al Jazeera, RTL and the historical MTV Idents, the colourful brand world of the Oscar-winning short film “Logorama” or the advertising worlds from Mercedes to Nike. As an exhibition catalogue with “built-in cinema”, ‘Moving Types’ itself writes a piece of media history. More than 80 film clips are made accessible to the reader by means of a QR code via a proprietary Moving Types APP (IOS/Android).
