FERDINAND HODLER
Maler der frühen Mod­erne

Ferdin­and Hodler (1853–1918) is among the most import­ant Swiss artists of the early twen­ti­eth cen­tury. He developed an unmis­tak­able style with­in Sym­bol­ism and Art Nou­veau. The exhib­i­tion Ferdin­and Hodler: Early Mod­ern Paint­er at the Bundeskun­sthalle is the first extens­ive present­a­tion of his works in Ger­many in nearly twenty years and is tak­ing place in cooper­a­tion with the Kun­st­mu­seum Bern.
The exhib­i­tion provides insight into the artist’s work on the threshold of the mod­ern­ism with around one hun­dred paint­ings. Hodler’s pen­chant for orna­ment and form­al repe­ti­tion were con­sidered nov­el among con­tem­por­ary artists. The accom­pa­ny­ing pub­lic­a­tion presents the artist­ic spec­trum of this excep­tion­al artist.

The typo­graphy
I am happy to have had the oppor­tun­ity to use my own designed typeface—FF Karbid Pro Text—for this excit­ing pro­ject. The very reduced Art Nou­veau design lan­guage of FF Karbid Pro works just per­fect for this pub­lic­a­tion about this import­ant pion­eer paint­er of the mod­ern­ism era.
