Artistic and commercial, avant-garde and traditional, nationalistic and international—modern graphic design in Germany reflected the social and political turbulence of the early twentieth century. This exhibition examines the development and application of innovative graphics and typology for mass persuasion, transforming how business and government communicated with the public. Organized by The Wolfsonian–Florida International University.
