The intelligent design of the drawers (folding panels in different sizes / various setups of the transparent covers with the indexcards resting on constellations of black and white painted poles) creates a specific composition for each case.
This results into an open and inviting spatial landscape of the exhibition as a whole. The flexible exhibition is ready to be installed elsewhere (complete or in parts) with the goal to bring about the narrative of the richness and variety of graphic languages and its role in society.
An accompanying extensive audio tour is written and recorded by The Palace of Typographic Masonry and Graphic Matters.
The exhibition is designed to travel, settle in different places and adapt to them. In collaboration with the inviting institute the content of the drawers can be amended or extended with works of other collections and the audiotour can easily be edited, rearranged, translated and re-recorded.
In this way, ‘An Alphabet of Cases’ forms a portal to other archives and collections, just as much as it brings about the layered narrative of The Palace of Typographic Masonry in all its facets.
