"there is nothing here that gives shade"

On October 20, our last event of the "otl aicher 100" initiative for the time being will take place: Karsten de Riese and Prof. Michael Klar will report in an anecdote-laden slide show about a motorcycle tour through the Tunisian desert, which they undertook together with Otl Aicher and his son Florian in 1975.
