Graphic design for the Bayerische Rundfunk Symphony Orchestra and Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich – but also for Munich’s subcultures. For the Bavarian State Opera – and the independent music label Gomma. For the Thalia Theater in Hamburg and fashion designer Kostas Murkudis in Berlin. Creative Director of the magazine of the weekly “Die Zeit” and the alternative Munich-based monthly newspaper “super paper”. In 2007 Mirko Borsche opened his own studio in Munich; Bureau Mirko Borsche has received many international prizes for its work in editorial design, book design, posters and websites.
For the exhibition “unplugged“ Mirko Borsche reduces the visual language of his original works to hand-painted posters in the size 70 x 100 cm. The abstraction of the original design ideas using black brushstrokes on a light grey background and the identical format used both for the composition of large posters but also magazine covers or CD sleeves enable an unusual, new perspective of the work and creative approach of the Bureau Mirko Borsche.
An exhibition of Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich – in cooperation with Bureau Mirko Borsche. Kindly supported by Atelier Steffen Kehrle, Munich.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a portfolio containing all exhibits in the format 297 mm x 210 mm. With essays by Christoph Amend – editor-in-chief ZEITmagazin – and Florian Hufnagl – Director of Die Neue Sammlung. 74 loose sheets, hand printed on the risograph. Handmade cover, screen printed. Design: Mirko Borsche. Print run: 100 copies.
