THE ASSEMBLED HUMAN
DER MONTIERTE MENSCH

Accompaning catalogue for the exhibition at Museum Folkwang, Essen

With The Assembled Human the Museum Folkwang inquires into the ambivalent relationship between humans and machines. It’s a conflicted relationship, fluctuating between utopia and nightmare, and it still influences our present time. From the conveyor belt to cybernetics to today’s digital revolution, the show traces the transformation of technology, presenting a wide panorama of artistic visual worlds: human beings as hybrid creatures, blended with the machines and technology  they have made. Featuring a number of essays, this extensive catalogue goes in-depth into this highly current issue. alongside its utopias and ideas for collective, interdisciplinary design.

The Typography
Matching the topic of the exhibition and catalogue, all the texts are set in IBM Plex.
> IBM Plex is an open source typeface superfamily conceptually designed and developed by Mike Abbink at IBM in collaboration with Bold Monday to reflect the brand spirit, beliefs and design principles of IBM and to be used for all brand experiences across the company internationally. Plex will replace Helvetica as the IBM corporate typeface after more than fifty years, freeing the company from extensive license payments in the process.
The used font for headlines, quotes (Slant and Backslant), page and caption numbers is (sometimes manupulated) the constructuvism inspired typeface Nielot by Laïc: Type Foundry.
