Otis Communication Arts Lecture: Harmen Liemburg

Published on Nov 27, 2012

The Otis College of Art and Design Communication Arts Department presents a lecture by Harmen Liemburg, October 25, 2012.

Harmen Liemburg, born in the Netherlands in 1966, started his career as a cartographer. He went to the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Liemburg is a graphic designer, screenprinter, educator and design journalist, based in Amsterdam. He became a member of a new breed of designers, one that is closely linked to the world of art, education and museums.

Liemburg is obsessed with screen printing, and uses the medium to create unexpected results. His style emphasizes the narrative aspect of images and the occasional beauty of everyday vernacular like logos and packaging design, that are woven together through collage techniques.

His projects are primarily linked to the transformation of exhibition spaces through the use of printed matter, linking digital tools to analogue methods of reproduction. The separate elements are given a new role and meaning by combining them with others. Together, they tell a new story. Besides being a graphic designer and artist, he's currently supervising the screenprinting shop at the Rietveld Academie.
