On the 3rd of February, the 550th anniversary of the death of Johannes Gutenberg was celebrated, which will be commemorated throughout 2018 with a multitude of events and exhibitions all over Europe around the figure of the brilliant German inventor. The Gutenberg Year kicked off in Barcelona on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of February with different exhibitions, conferences and workshops
“Serendipity” is an invention, a lucky finding result of chance that occurs when the objective is very different. Perhaps that should be the title of these compositions: “Serendipity in red (or blue)”, since it emerged by accident while reproducing a wood alphabet
After finishing my last project “The New Call” last November, I was honored to exhibit and present it in Madrid, at the Centro Cultural Conde Duque, within the Typomad Festival, and afterwards, toward January, to do a trip to Holland (Amsterdam and Groningen) where I was invited by the GWA and the GRID.
The New Call, BunkerType’s latest project, takes over from my previous approach to H.N. Werkman, and propose a new and more mature and personal reinterpretation, of one of the most paradigmatic works of the admired Dutch author: “The Next Call”, one of the boldest publication of the European avant-garde art of the interwar period.
