Niklaus Troxler – Tape It Easy

23.4. – 10.7.2022

Niklaus Troxler has made a name for himself internationally with his jazz posters. These veritable synesthetic events make music physically tangible, attesting to Troxler’s exuberant graphic inventiveness. On the occasion of his 75th birthday, the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich is paying tribute to Troxler’s poster art with a publication in the Poster Collection series. The graphic artist will in turn donate a temporary mural to the museum, creating the artwork on a wall using colored adhesive tape during a live performance accompanied by jazz music. With virtuoso creativity, Troxler demonstrates how the character of experimental music can be translated into two dimensions while evoking its improvisational gestures.

The publication Niklaus Troxler, Poster Collection 34 is available in the museum store and in the eShop.
