The Debate – Online exhibition – 2019

In 1972, a clash of subjectivity versus objectivity between Dutch Graphic Designers Wim Crouwel and Jan van Toorn took place at Amsterdam’s Museum Fodor. Since The Debate took place in 1972, it is essential to discuss, or at least decide on, whether their arguments are still relevant as we are living with internet and desktop publishing software that did not exist at that time. Therefore, a proposal for an online exhibition has been made, so visitors can discuss the two gentlemen’s views by participating in a “live” and public Debate.
