To celebrate the publication of the Kleine Welt exhibition catalogue, Neubauer Collegium Curator Dieter Roelstraete will discuss the “curious art of the book cover” with University of Chicago Press Executive Editor Susan Bielstein, who contributed an essay to the catalogue, and graphic artist David Giordano, who designed the book. Published on the occasion of the Kleine Welt exhibition at the Neubauer Collegium, Kleine Welt offers a close-up look at the art and semantics of the book cover, focusing on the figures of Caspar David Friedrich and Paul Klee and their enduring popularity in the academic publishing world. A Q&A and book signing will follow the discussion.
