Breaking Good

Schreibend durch die Geschichte der gebrochenen Schriften

Drury Brennan, Marleen Krallmann, Albert-Jan Pool, Petra Rüth | July 16–17, 2016 | Hamburg,
ALSTERDAMM – School of Visual Arts

The workshop and lecture series on broken scripts was aiming to introduce three of them through writing. Marleen Krallmann offered a theoretical journey through the history, split up in single lectures throughout the course.
Drury Brennan taught Textura, Albert-Jan Pool instructed on Fraktur and Petra Rüth gave an introduction to German Kurrent. On Sunday there was time to use the learned scripts and techniques for spontaneous projects. In the Grande Finale we designed our own tote bags. (Agenda PDF)
