Special exhibition "Otl Aicher. Olympia 72" at the Bröhan Museum
From August 26 to October 30, the Bröhan Museum is showing the special exhibition "Otl Aicher. Olympia 72".

Details

Otl Aicher, one of the most important graphic designers of the 20th century, would have turned 100 in 2022. One of his most spectacular projects 50 years ago was the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Otl Aicher and his team developed a complete visual identity under the slogan "the cheerful games" for the first time in the history of the Olympic Games, which still sets standards today and has actually remained unrivaled.

The native of Ulm developed signs that everyone knows: stick figures symbolizing the various sports, a telephone receiver symbol, a coffee cup indicating gastronomy - a graphic guidance system. The exhibition presents posters, bulletins and program booklets. Other exhibits, such as the legendary Olympia-Waldi, as well as signs, training suits, hostess dirndls and souvenirs, allow visitors to immerse themselves in the world of the 1972 Munich Olympics. The show is complemented by photographs documenting the construction of the Olympic Park and thus also outlining the creative departure in architecture. For more information on the exhibition, visit here.

We are especially pleased that Dr. Tobias Hoffmann, the director of the Broehan Museum and curator of the exhibition, will participate as a panelist in our event "wir haben brot, wir haben spiele" (we have bread, we have games) at the Akademie der Künste on the evening of August 26. You can register for this here.
