In the curator of the Museum of Cultures proposed to experiment on a fictionary catalogue for the temporary exhibition “STROH GOLD”. We decided to play with found image materials mixed together with the exhibtion’s images. We took inspiration from Aby Warburg tables of images to create a new scenario of the exhibtion: an explanded collection of up-cicled objects.

Aaron Ritschard, artist and designer from Basel created a series of illustration to narrate particular stories related to objects and cultures which are combined with text written il the Larish Neue font by Radinpesko.
