Summer exhibition Karl-Heinz Ströhle

In the framework of the summer exhibition by Karl-Heinz Ströhle Atelier Andrea Gassner designed a 132-page magazine and a scenographic presentation about the artist’s art-in-building projects, which has held on the upper floor of the Palais Thurn und Taxis, Bregenz. On the side walls a series of project titles and unbound collated sheets of original printed pages from the magazine documented the most important works. The spatially dynamic structure was formed by plots on textile showing wall-high project illustrations and using initial typography that were positioned centrally in the space, where they were hung from the exposed roof trusses.

In the bibliophile magazine design Atelier Andrea Gassner used design qualities like those found in  Karl-Heinz Ströhle’s work; white space, clear lines, reduction, materiality, translucence, and movement. The text pages are consistently separated from the image pages and yet woven together by the transparent paper. The overlapping of the generous image pages and the typography on the text pages creates an entirely new dynamism and spatiality. When one turns the page to an image the large project title blends behind it, like a glazed underprint.
