POSTER REX was founded in 2014 by the graphic designers Lars Harmsen and Markus Lange. For each session, they invite an artist to create unique posters, produced in different silkscreen workshops around the globe. All posters are silkscreen printed by hand or with other digital or analog techniques. Each session has its own topic. By now, the collection counts over 1.500 unique posters. A set of posters have been curated for exhibitions.
