I. Am. For. Polar. Opposites.
by Markus Bernatzky © 2002
Markus Bernatzky wrote and designed a book about opposites. Systematically he worked his way through a comprehensive list of relevant pairs of polar opposites. Markus Bernatzky did not aim to leave the opposites he diligently collected in an objective state, he wanted to turn them against each other. He aimed at showing the good bits in evil and the evil bits in the well-meant.
In his book, the relative and fluid clashes with belief, knowledge and opinion. The backbone are his own thoughts which he expresses clearly in his own ironic way. To illustrate the editorial Markus Bernatzky uses surprising pictorial associations in the background that keep the viewer’s attention alive.
