Freek Lomme (Ed.)
50-year-olds: they’re hung up in streets, stuck in dull, damp plastic sleeves; they are taped to lampposts, to electricity substations or traffic signs; or they’re attached to trees with drawing pins. This publication explores the typically Dutch tradition of publicly displaying homemade photo collages throughout streets and neighborhoods in celebration of a person’s fiftieth birthday. The presented collection of posters from the private collection of Freek Lomme is a study of non-intentional art under the scrutiny of the public eye. It constitutes an archive and is an ode to amateur, homemade graphic design. Perhaps involuntarily, the posters bear a sense of humor and irony to the rest of the on-looking public.
