Tip of the week

The city of Kowloon was a surveillance point against pirates. The British controlled it, yet it formed part of China. After the Second World War the mafias took control. It was the densest city in the world, also in dentists, who could practice without a license. Its tall buildings blocked out the sunlight for the pedestrians below, giving it the nickname The City of Darkness. It was illuminated by fluorescent tubes, and exposed electrical systems. It was demolished in the 80’s.

The Fundació Joan Miró new exhibition “Sumer and the modern paradigm” explains the fascination that modern artists who were producing work between the twenties and forties had for Mesopotamian art. It analyzes both the works produced at that time, their influences, and furthermore the documentation of Mesopotamian art that these modern artists encountered.

What the modern artists saw wasn’t the original work, but reproductions that appeared in magazines, high contrast black and white images printed with limited means. For this reason our campaign features bold halftone grid patterns and image overlaps.

We have contrasted the original images with a powerful contemporary colour pallet, to give a striking visual impact to the campaign.
