description
A glass-fronted display case is an ordinary item of museum and gallery institutions. However, in the poster on which this is the basic motif, the author does not fill it up with any items of the heritage, which would have been expected. He puts the stylised display case on a base with classical moulding, filling it with figures in movement, designed in Expressionist manner, shown only in silhouette. In this manner he shifts the borders in the presentation of museum objects – he puts human beings, as the owners of the tangible artefacts presented – in the foreground. It is man that is the carrier of memory, and human stories and experiences represent something that happened in some moment in the past.

The poster is given mega-format shape (it is composed of six parts).
