What's the story behind the creation of a poster?

Anette Lenz

And the one that follows? Let's talk together about the process, the dialogue between hand and head, the look, the moment, the move, the love of cinema and setting in motion.
Anette Lenz is a graphic designer living and working in Paris. Concerned with the question of public space in the broadest sense, she works with a variety of clients, including cultural institutions, particularly in the performing arts.
She sees graphic design as a formidable tool for poetic and political connection. Her internationally acclaimed work is regularly exhibited, including her solo show À propos at the Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt, Germany. She is a member of Alliance Graphique Internationale and teaches graphic design at HEAD in Geneva.
