Book artists Uta Schneider and Ulrike Stoltz will give a presentation titled "The Making of" at 5 p.m. Tuesday, February 19, in the Ginkgo Reading Room (Olin Library, Level 1). Schneider and Stoltz worked collaboratively and on solo projects for 27 years, after studying visual communication at Germany’s Offenbach Academy of Art and Design.
Stoltz focuses on books, typography, text, and sound, and teaches typography and the book at Braunschweig University of Art and Design. Schneider focuses on drawing, typography, installation, and text. They exhibit internationally and have work in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), the Pompidou Centre (Paris), Houghton Library & Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, New York Public Library, the Museum of Modern Art (New York), and many others. The piece pictured here is called “zwiefach” meaning two-fold or double.
