"The Most Beautiful German Books Prize," 2006. A comprehensive tribute to the multitalented Anton Stankowski–in celebration of his 100th birthday.
In his multifaceted artistic activity, Anton Stankowski (1906–1998) always approached his work in terms of the overall design. As a decorative painter influenced by the Bauhaus and a comrade-in-arms of the Concrete artists in Zurich, he began to concentrate on fundamental visual elements in the late 1920s. At the same time, his masterly, abstract photographs, clever advertising graphics, and remarkable company logos were outstanding examples of visualization in the applied arts. In the post-war years, besides his work for SEL, the Süddeutscher Rundfunk, and the Deutsche Bank, he developed a formal theory of design and also produced many paintings and high-quality prints. In celebration of the centennial of Stankowski’s birth, this monograph will present the entire spectrum of Stankowski’s surprising and inventive designs, which continue to set standards to this day. Exhibition schedule: Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, April 8–July 2, 2006 · Haus Konstruktiv Zürich, August 23–end of October 2006 · Josef Albers Museum, Bottrop, November 19, 2006–February 11, 2007
