Alberto Vieceli - Hello, we are here
Graphic designer Alberto Vieceli presents 110 postcards from the time before Google Maps existed. While postcard collectors consider those with writing on the picture side as inferior, the artist presents his personal collection of postcards featuring small interventions. Made with crosses, arrows, circles, or comments, their purpose was to give the receiver more precise information, such as the position of the hotel where the sender stayed or where they laid on the beach, therefore making “the observer an accomplice.” With an introduction by Max Küng, who also contributed a postcard, every book also comes with an original postcard selected by the artist.
