Schatten der Reformation – Exhibition
On the occasion of 500 years of reformation history, the exhibition "Liberation and Persecution" in the townhall of Zürich confronts the reformation era and the present on a surprisingly personal level: ten couples, one historical and one living, face each other directly and convey an ambivalent view of religious upheaval.
Centre of the exhibition are persons such as an iconoclast, a nun, an abbess, a religious refugee and a farmer, whose different experiences invite a critical examination of the events. They are confronted by people from the present who, in turn, take their own look at the historical heritage and the situation today.
Exhibition Stadthaus Zürich, September 2018 until March 2019, organised by Stadt Zürich Kultur in collaboration with Verein Schatten der Reformation.

White Duke #1-4 – V&A Museum London
Series of 4 exclusive prints created initially in 2013 to accompany the David Bowie Is exhibition at the V&A Museum London.
The ambition for this portrait was to portray David Bowie not as Ziggy Stardust but in the less documented Berlin era, and still take distinctive visual elements from his various looks throughout the time of his career, to combine it and produce an iconic and unique image. The drawing of Bowie is reduced to the bare minimum, bringing out his characteristic eyes and expressing a sense of elegance.

#2. Screenprinted matt white with stardust on 220 gsm Mirri matt silver paper, this 2nd edition measures 70 x 70 cm and comes in an edition of 250.

For the redesigned NZZ Fokus Magazine I was briefed to design a series of covers with each having an iconic illustration and a background pattern that supported the image. The task for the cover of every issue is to find a clever iconic figure to represent the whole issue’s theme, but without being too general or stereotyped. The idea of the background pattern was to bring the main figure into a surrounding that supports the content in a witty or iconic way.
