New contributions to design research

Carsten Wolff regularly publishes new articles about Fleckhaus and his work. Via the navigation bar or by the anmoderation here the latest contributions are available.

On the occasion of Otl Aicher’s 100th birthday in April 2022, Carsten Wolff was asked to write a text about the four great German graphic designers Otl Aicher, Anton Stankowski, Kurt Weidemann and Willy Fleckhaus. Under the title Alphawölfe (Alpha Wolves), it is available in the portal created especially for the anniversary.

For the opening of the exhibition Cover Art, Carsten Wolff published the catalog contribution Tonangebend. Über das Design der Schallplattenhüllen von Willy Fleckhaus für das Magazin twen. The catalog is available from Galerie Stihl in Waiblingen.

Another text about the genesis of edition suhrkamp appeared in the exhibition catalog Deutsches Design 1949–1989. Zwei Länder, eine Geschichte which was shown in 2021 at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein and subsequently at the Kunstgewerbemuseum, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden. The exhibition also includes an archive from the Fleckhaus Now!archive on loan. The text with the title
Der kühl kalkulierte Rausch der Farben. Das Design der edition suhrkamp von Willy Fleckhaus is available for reading on the blog.
