Thomas Mayfried – Between Art and Communication
Design Schau! Speech
Max-Joseph-Str. 4, 80333 München
Thomas Mayfried will talk about his design principles and his work, including the graphic appearance of the Haus der Kunst for Chris Dercon.
Thomas Mayfried stands for a visual communication which in its reduction and decisiveness moves fundamental questions of design to the center of perception. The means and tools he uses are supposedly simple, often it's about setting letters or pictures in a specific way. His work includes the graphic appearance of the Haus der Kunst in Munich, which Mayfried had newly developed in 2003 for Chris Dercon's program. After training as a photographer and studies in graphic design, Thomas Mayfried now works in Munich and currently teaches at the Free University of Bolzano.
