Past exhibition: 100 best posters from Germany, Austria and Switzerland

Editor's note: This post refers to the "100 Best Posters - 14" past exhibition which was open until March 28, 2016
 
For a tenth year in a row, the MAK is hosting the exhibition 100 BEST POSTERS' 14th installment. Showcasing designers from Germany, Austria & Switzerland, the exhibition will show the hundred strongest design concepts in what is probably the hottest medium of everyday visual culture: the poster. This year’s winning projects in the popular German-language graphic design competition amaze with their great wit, explosive color schemes, as well as meticulous workmanship, and serve as impressive proof that a poster can be more than just a banal advertising space.
