The value of ephemera. Johannes Wohnseifer has been designing the posters for his exhibitions for 20 years. If one is not counted as a "poster artist" in the field of so-called "applied art", then these printed works often enough only appear at the very end of the catalog raisonné, underestimated as drastically reduced images. But what if the artist sees things quite differently? Around 90 posters that Johannes Wohnseifer created for his exhibitions between 1994 and 2014 have been compiled here. The artist has reworked some of them, but always in the spirit of their former use. This extensive project is therefore nothing less than a retrospective in poster book form. In this way, it takes the works out of the nowhere between purposeful announcement and independent work. The book in poster-like DIN A3 format functions both as a complete directory and as an artist's book. It presents supposedly purpose-bound works as independent artworks. A complete body of work, which is always in danger of being overlooked, reveals itself here as a treasure trove.
