What we wanted was to show all Ostengruppe posters in one place. We've got lots of them, and it's really cool because having plenty of really different posters is better than having just a handful of good ones. Today we do most of Russian posters, and nobody’s gonna get us or overtake ‘cause we are copious.
For the first time in 9 years we’ve realized that it’s totally worthy to gather them all and put them on display.
So many things have changed during these years, so many chasms were cut open only to prove futile — and shut closed, it's interesting to observe the results now.
The poster isn't dead, but its function has changed. It used to be an announcement vehicle once, now it’s kind of a marker of one’s private territory in this-is-a-message-to-those-who’re-with-us way. And we've walked this path together with the poster design world trends.
You can describe any event in your own way. And telling someone's story in your own voice and manner is a work for a director, it is not exactly about the illustrations.
