By Otl Aicher
"An vital portion of Aicher's paintings is that it's anchored in a "philosophy of constructing" encouraged via such thinkers as Ockham, Kant or Wittgenstein, a philosophy involved in the necessities and goals, the items and claims, of layout. Aicher's whole theoretical and useful writings on layout (which contain all different features of visible creativity, reminiscent of structure) can be found with this re-creation of the vintage work.
If Aicher prefers the analogous and urban to the electronic and summary he does it with a philosophical purpose. He relativizes the function of natural cause. He criticizes the rationality of Modernism because of the dominance of in basic terms summary pondering. a person who prefers the summary to the concrete doesn't in basic terms misunderstand the mutual dependence of thought and think about. In Aicher's judgement he's additionally making a fake hierarchy, a rank order that's culturally deadly. issues which are electronic and summary aren't higher, greater and extra vital than issues which are analogous and concrete."
