Curator's tour of the exhibition "Paul Renner in his time – book designer, typographer, painter"

We cordially invite you to our first event in the new Munich city group!

The first event of our newly founded city group in Munich under the direction of our member Ernst Reif is a guided tour by the two curators through the exhibition "Paul Renner in seiner Zeit - Buchgestalter, Typograph, Maler". The inventor of the typeface "Futura" will be shown from his different sides as a book designer, as a painter and as a politically active contemporary. His critical text "Kulturbolschewismus?" of 1932 led to his writings being placed on the list of forbidden books. The exhibition is a project of students of the Institute for German Philology under the direction of Prof. Dr. Waldemar Fromm (Center for Literature in Bavaria) and Laura Mokrohs (Center for Book Science) in cooperation with the Bavarian State Library, the University Library of the LMU Munich and the Typographic Society Munich. 

After the tour, we invite you to end the evening together in a nearby restaurant.
