Karel Martens, Platfrom-L (Authors)
This catalogue accompanies an exhibition of new and old works by Karel Martens at the Platform-L Contemporary Art Centre in Seoul, curated by Sang Un Jeon.
Its format and content offer a concise overview of the world of the renowned Dutch graphic artist, who has created an extensive palette of works over the six decades of his career.
The various influences he has taken up during this period, combined with his socially conscious approach, have made him an idiosyncratic designer who combines rational schemes and literary sensibility in a remarkable way.
The publication was designed by Sulki & Min, former students of Martens at Yale University.
