For many years posters by Noth (*1941) have enriched and shaped the cultural landscape in Berlin. Particular mention should be made to his work with the International Film Festival, the Berlinale (a collaboration that would span decades) and the resulting body of posters.
His works demonstrate his excellent feel for making an impact. Photography and typography constitute the key elements and are often combined with rich colours to produce surfaces rich in contrast. His works are seldom “loud” and garish but rather bold and colourful, they try to persuade rather than overpower. His personal style reveals the respectful approach he adopts when interpreting a particular topic.
The catalogue presents a representative cross-section of his oeuvre.
