Karel Marten OASE/

Published by The Narrows, Melbourne, 2011, foldout poster (colour & b/w ill.), 10 × 21 cm (folded) 30 × 42 cm (unfolded), English

Price: €6

Poster/invitation produced on the occasion of KAREL MARTENS OASE/, April 6 – 21, 2011, Faculty Gallery, Monash University, Melbourne. Curated by Warren Taylor.

The exhibition focused on Martens contribution to the graphic style of OASE, Journal for Architecture. From 1990 (Issue 28) Martens took over the art direction of the journal, often working with students from the Werkplaats Typografie – an experimental typography school he founded in 1998 with Wigger Bierma. What began as a student magazine, evolved into an international professional journal in which a reflective and critical approach to architecture, urban design and landscape architecture is the mainstay. Recently celebrating its 75th issue, the success of OASE is, in part, due to Martens refined graphic statement, often absorbing his print and typographic experiments and upholding the dialogue between graphic design and architecture.

More information on the exhibition can be found here.
