Sophie Calle – Moi aussi – Artist book

Sophie Calle had a birthday ritual from 1980 to 1994 where she conserved her gifts instead of using them. She exposed them later in glass vitrines it traced her social friendships and her own existence. In 1981 the first social oriented president François Mitterand was elected. He decided also not to use his gifts that he received and to share them with the french nation by exposing them in a museum. He was president for 14 years, exactly the same amount of years than Sophie, just one year shifted. The artist book puts in parallel the gifts of the artist and the president.

Le soleil de 2011 - Agenda

New Years Card for Ante Prima Conseil, which I designed as a calendar. 60 pages. On each double-page you have represented 2 weeks/14 days in rows. The middle yellow stripe indicates you the hours of sun for each day. The stripe is becoming thicker in summer-time and thinner in winter-time. I love the shift of the stripe on days where the time is changing from summer- to winter-time and vice-versa. The last double-page represents the light of moon during 2011. The calendar was selected and exposed by the Tokyo Type Directors Club in 2012.

Poster for “Mut zur Wut”

I was asked to design a poster for an upcoming exposition, with the german theme: Mut zur Wut, wich stands for:
have the courage to express your anger. The current french security politics and it's inhuman treatment
of the Romas make me angry. French politics is creating a xenophobia wich reminds me of dark times!
