Berlin, with its rich historical background and cultural uniqueness, provides an open environment for designers, enhancing their creativity and allowing the coexistence of multiple ideas regarding design. The posters featured in this exhibition are works inspired by the Zeitgeist Movement and contemporary Berlin, created by exceptional contemporary designers from renowned Berlin-based design studios, including Cyan, LSD, HeSign, EPS51, Ruddigkeit, Ariane Spanier, Fons Hickmann m23, Surface, among others. The exhibition includes posters relating to art exhibitions, festivals, concerts, performances and social issues. By sharing works that blend art and design, the Cultural Affairs Bureau hopes to provide a source of inspiration and an exchange opportunity for Macao design professionals.
