, a solo exhibition by Ferenc Gróf explores the connections between the human body and the written form of characters and texts.
On the title page of Thomas More’s Utopia
, first published five hundred years ago, beside a map of an imaginary country a utopian alphabet can also be seen. New world, new people, new writing system.
What does the hierographic origin of modern fonts say about them? The mise-en-scene of early modern anatomical theatre underlie the display of works but here instead of people, typefaces lie on the dissecting-table as accents and punctuation in a text of a utopia that has to be reconsidered.
The exhibition is realized as a program of the OFF-Biennale.
