Munitionsfabrik 22 – Karlsruhe

The topic of the 22nd issue of the annual publication series ‚Muntionsfabrik‘ is Karlsruhe, a city in the South West of Germany, right at the border to France and home of 300.000 residents.

The essays and art works featured in this book explore the city’s ambivalent character switching between personal cosiness, cultural neutrality, political dubiety, surprising discoveries and the tension of here and there.

The headline typeface serves as representative for the picturesque and uncanny appearance of this medium-sized city. Ornaments generated from the font are framing short statements that were set on local stone.
