What is new here is the method and purpose of representation: advertising contemporary theater plays. These posters challenge the viewer's facul ties of comprehension and interpretation. In their totality they add up to a critical reflec tion of our own time. This couple naturally does not limit their artistic activities to the design of theater posters. They also create book covers, programs and TV-titles. The latter are destined for the Süddeutsche Rund funk where Frieder Grindler heads the de partment of TV-graphics. The two artists themselves define what is so special about their work: «The theater posters and all other designs are the fruits of our leisure- hours.» 6-13 15
