Steve Bannon: A Propaganda Retrospective
The identity for Restless Matter started with a careful observation of our relationship to matter and objects. How it looks like, what can be sensed, observed, heard, touched, to a micro level, the organic substance, and sub-micro, atomic level, when it becomes invisible. All the works were seen only through their constitutive matter.
Identity and catalogue developed for the Alvar Aalto Pavilion of Finland at the 57th International Art Exhibition — La Biennale di Venezia 2017. The Aalto Natives — A Transcendental Manual By Nathaniel Mellors And Erkka Nissinen re-imagines Finnish society through the eyes of two messianic outsider figures, Geb and Atum, who are represented by talking animatronic puppets. It conflates ideas and tropes from archaeology, anthropology and science fiction.
The New World Summit is an artistic and political organization founded by visual artist Jonas Staal in 2012, dedicated to providing “alternative parliaments” hosting organizations that currently find themselves excluded from democracy. The visual foundation is formed by a template that resembles a flag, but is actually a blueprint of overlaying types of parliaments.
This art event consisted of presentations at several locations spread around the city. The challenge was to bring these locations together as well as make them identifiable as biennial-venue. The identity contains a symbolic intervention: the dynamic moiré pattern composing a circle, which can be viewed as a lens but also as a forum for assembling thoughts and actions.
The platform was organized around four dedicated sections – international editorial desks, critical and innovative essays with editorial cartoons, writings about a single image by invited authors, texts thematically commissioned. The design of the platform and all media that derived from it, echo this structure and visual qualities of the core of the project.

For the exhibition, identity and the publication ‘herman de vries, to be all ways to be’ Remco van Bladel transformed the Futura typeface by Paul Renner into a specially customized version, called ‘natura’.
