Vorgestellt und aufgebautis a special exhibition at the Mühlenhofopen-air museum in which the supposed idyll of this very place is critically questioned from a historical perspective. The exhibition shows the research results of Master’s students of cultural anthropology at the University of Münster. These investigations are shown in an exhibition of posters that highlight various themes in the history of the Mühlenhof, with texts and archive material.
To show that the appearance of the Mühlenhof is constructed and presented in a deliberate way, Agentur and Suisse Int’lwere chosen to create a contrast. While the broad nib construction of Agentur is meant to represent the old and original state of this place, the grotesque classic Suisse Int’l is used to represent the new, the present and everything that has been added to the appearance of this place to make it shine in a certain way. The shifted superimposition of these two typefaces leads to a subtle clash of two different points in typographic history.
