EXHIBITIONS / From Posada to Isotype, from Kollwitz to Catlett: Exchanges of Political Print Culture. Germany - Mexico 1900-1968

22 March, 2022 - 29 August, 2022
MNCARS, Madrid
Benjamin H. D. Buchloh y Michelle Harewood

The exhibition From Posada to Isotype, from Kollwitz to Catlett centres its research on the development and exchange between different purportedly obsolete and anti-technology print media — woodcuts, wood engravings, linocut and lithography — and its role and means of distribution in divergent geopolitical and social contexts. The show, curated by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh and Michelle Harewood, is articulated around four major areas, starting with early examples by Mexican artist José Guadalupe Posada and German artist Käthe Kollwitz, two major figures in printmaking at the end of the 19th century, moving on to German Expressionism and the Taller de Gráfica Popular (The People’s Print Workshop) from Mexico, and ending with the project Isotype (International System of Typographic Picture Education) by Otto Neurath and Marie Reidemeister-Neurath, from Austria, and German artist Gerd Arntz.
