Freier Eintritt

Josef Müller-Brockmann was one of the most influential representatives of constructive Swiss graphic design, which consistently used photomontage in its advertising graphics. Depending on the commission, Müller-Brockmann preferred objective, expressive, or abstract photography. He gave the photographers working at his studio — mostly graduates of the Zurich Photography Class — plenty of time to experiment and in the 1950s also lent a hand himself. The results were playful light drawings based on Picasso’s model, blurred long shots of racing cars, night fireworks or stage lights, as well as abstract to non-objective photograms.
