Oktoberfest 1984–2019 Volker Derlath
The Munich Oktoberfest, also known as the Wiesn, is considered the largest folk festival in the world: two exhilarating weeks with beer, chicken, rides and partying people from all over the world. But like last year, this year’s festival has been canceled due to a pandemic. Sad news for the worldwide fan community.

For 35 years, Munich photographer Volker Derlath has hardly missed a Wiesn day. With his camera, right in the middle of the action, he is capturing intimate moments, touching scenes, moments full of violence and comedy. The “folk festival of all folk festivals” reminds him, with its incomparable coarseness of folk amusements, of the Middle Ages, he says. The Wiesn is a kind of utopia where visitors can live out what has long since been domesticated in their everyday lives and swept under the rug of civilization.

With the book Oktoberfest we remember a time when people could still unconditionally drink, flirt, and celebrate together!

About Volker Derlath: The multiple award-winning photographer Volker Derlath has lived in Munich since 1982 and works primarily there according to the motto: “Think globally—photograph in a village of millions.” On the series about the Oktoberfest he works continuously since 1984 in the evening analog with black and white film and frontal flash. As an equally enthusiastic beer drinker and photographer, he sees himself as part of the action.

100 Poster Battle 2020–2021 By Students of FH Dortmund with Lars Harmsen
Sober: A poster should invite, communicate, inform, convince, and also provoke. If a viewer feels addressed, a poster is able to influence his or her decisions through text and images.

Emotional: @100posterbattle—one poster a day, for a hundred days, the span of a semester. Inspired by daily events from politics and current affairs. With the aim to try out different techniques, beyond the limits of conventional tools.

In the end, 100 days of poster design reads like a diary. 2020/21 was marked by the pandemic and its consequences for culture, society, and education, the scary tweets of Trump and the upcoming US-elections, BLM, LGBTQ, Söder and Laschet in the power struggle, pro-democracy demos in Thailand, climate goals 2030, and fun-facts like the height of Mt. Everest which has shrunk by 86 cm, the eruption of the Sakurajima volcano in Japan, Elon Musk has become the richest man in the world as well as the boom of sextoys …

Büro Destruct 4 By Büro Destruct - the 4th monograph not only presents the best of the realized projects of the past twelve years, but also intermediate steps, discards, experiments, and inspiration
In contrast to the strict and somewhat restrained Swiss Style of the 1960s, Büro Destruct stands for design without the handbrake on. Apparently everything is possible. It can be humorous, loud, colorful and zeitgeisty. At the same time, minimalism, precision and craftsmanship are present in all their work. The Swiss, who see themselves and their studio as a kind of band, again present a skillfully composed album with this new book.

The Bern-based foursome have never dealt in safe or conventional consensus graphics, but prefer distinct, sometimes trashy and always refreshingly original designs. Blessed with a healthy dose of insatiable curiosity, they have been seeking out inspiration from beyond the mountain ranges since the mid-1990s—long before the proliferation of Internet access and distribution. The Swiss strongly associate with values inherent in Japanese culture, in which they have found—and continue to find—inspiration over the years. However, unlike Emil Ruder and other heroes of classic Swiss graphic design, who also drew on Japan, they are more inspired by the wild side of Japanese culture.

Büro Destruct’s vector-heavy graphics have always conformed to “think global, act local.” Often against the grain of public conception: they were among the few to ignore the temporary, yet intense flirt of Swiss graphic design with fledgling neo-conservatism. Over the past 27 years, Büro Destruct have successfully avoided being pinned down or getting too comfortable in a defined area. At the same time, of course, it is there: that special Destruct eerie feeling. An independent handwriting, for which many words could be found, but which even after more than two decades is best conveyed by looking at their work …

The 4th monograph not only presents the best of the realized projects of the past twelve years, but also intermediate steps, discards, experiments, and inspiration.

About Büro Destruct: Swiss Graphic Design Studio Büro Destruct founded 1994 in Bern by “HGB Fideljus” Berger & Lorenz “Lopetz” Gianfreda. In 1995 Marc “MB” Brunner & Heinz “H1” Reber joined the current group formation. Since day one, BD has kept open the boundary between art and commercial graphic design, as testified to by the number and variety of techniques employed, and reflected in projects for clients from widely differing fields. Publications, exhibitions, lectures and workshops around the world enable the Büro Destruct project to keep itself in a progress of continual renewal and to widen its contacts to Bern, the capital of Switzerland, in line with its motto: “Small City—Big Design.” © // 33 files show complete blog
