Poster No 524 presents graphic designers René Put and Rianne Petter's visual research into the medium of the poster. For three months, Petter and Put collected posters found throughout the city of Amsterdam, a total of 523 different posters. They carefully studied and deconstructed this collection, researched certain elements, isolated and then reconstructed them. Poster No 524 makes clear how a creative research process works, and is designed so that more generalized ideas about posters and visual culture are made visible. Jeroen Boomgaard and Jouke Kleerebezem's texts both deepen and contextualize Petter and Put's particular approach, while at the same time exploring the meaning of posters in public space.
