here are some further details, translated into english, about the show:
THE BIG SCREEN — FILM POSTERS OF ALL TIME
Film posters are both advertising and art: they condense a film’s plot into a single concise image and spark curiosity. They translate cinema – and all the emotions it evokes – into graphic design. The exhibition presents 300 original posters from twelve decades – classics, cult films, and arthouse cinema.
PROS AND CELEBS: 26 posters were chosen by film industry experts – hear their voices in the exhibition.
OPENING CREDITS: Graphics meet moving images.
PAULA POPCORN: Follow our mascot to family stations and listen, play, and draw!
