Connections in Swiss Graphic Design

Discovering connections in arts in Zurich.


Join me as I try and make sense of the connections and disconnections in graphic arts. An occasional blog, I post only when something catches my eye. When the visual landscape of the city is scythed by something new, fresh, challenging, innovative, fun, dangerous or just damn beautiful.

I want to find out about the way graphic executions come about, and find their place in society and culture. Eschewing design-for-designers, this blog is about linking design to the world around us.

Let's join the dots of Switzerland's visual arts scene.

Rhizome is a philosophical concept developed by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari in Capitalism and Schizophrenia (1972–1980). 

Rather than narrativize history and culture, the rhizome presents history and culture as a map or wide array of attractions and influences with no specific origin or genesis, for a 'rhizome has no beginning or end; it is always in the middle, between things, interbeing, intermezzo.'
