Due to actual cir­cum­stances, the lec­ture has been can­celed. Thomas wasn’t able to get another flight to Poland. The lec­ture will be post­poned to a date in mid may. We will inform you when we get a new date. We are very sorry for any inconvenience.

„Art and Typog­ra­phy“:
On Beauty, Ugli­ness, Not Only in Typography

The King of Cape Arcona, Thomas Schos­tok aka {ths} will hold a speech about typog­ra­phy, design and art. To him the clas­si­cal bor­ders that are drawn between com­mer­cial and non-commercial art are blurred. The three dis­ci­plines are strongly influ­enc­ing each other, so that one couldn’t exist with­out the other. What­ever {ths} is work­ing on, he is look­ing for the beauty of imper­fec­tion. Every type­face and every design needs a cer­tain amount of ugli­ness to become inter­est­ing and beau­ti­ful in a deeper and more touch­ing way than super­fi­cial beauty could be.

Some rules in life are sim­ple. If you had a good drink: go and get another one. For type sym­posia it’s basi­cally the same. In 2006 33pt was pretty cool, so here is the next one: 33pt. Eska­pade. Cape Arconas Pres­i­dent, Ste­fan Claudius, helps plan­ning and orga­niz­ing this event with a group of stu­dents and pro­fes­sor Sabine an Huef. The list of speak­ers is impres­sive. Mar­tin Majoor, Rob Meek, Phil Baines, David Crow and ‘Type radio’ to name just a few.
