Poster Collection 27 - The Hand

Author(s): Museum fur Gestaltung Zurich


This small cultural history is dedicated to the hand as a popular motif in visual communication. The history of posters is rich in variations on the hand. In consumer posters, a hand presents desirable products. But the hand can also take the form of a symbolically charged gesture in the political poster. In cultural posters, the hand then becomes the emblem of the creative individual. Just as versatile as the rhetoric of the hand are its diverse uses as a design element.
