Type Identity

with Justus Gelberg

Justus and I designed furniture and print material for Kara Walker’s retrospective at Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt.

We used Redaction to typeset all the texts in the exhibition. The font has originally been commissioned by Titus Kaphar and Reginald Dwayne Betts’ and is based on the typefaces used in legal documents from claims filed by the US Civil Rights Corps. "As files were faxed, photocopied, and otherwise reproduced, the letterforms became bitmapped, bloated, warped, and were sometimes reduced to near-illegible forms."
