Basel Poster Collection

The poster collection of the Basel School of Design is a special public collection. Its task is to collect posters with local, content-related, or design-related connections to northwestern Switzerland. With a collection of around 100,000 posters from the fields of culture, politics, and business, the Poster Collection is an important part of Switzerland's visual memory. This video introduces the Basel Poster Collection and provides insights into the archive.

A video project from 2021 at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design with Marco Weber. This video was produced as part of the “Memory Full? Digital Legacy 2021 DHS Annual Conference”.
