This book discusses preservation and outcomes of design-related objects in artistic collections taking the example of Dieter Roth's works inside the Frac Bretagne's collection.
This project was conducted by a group of students in graphic design from EESAB Rennes, on the occasion of a workshop on the Frac's collection. The books and posters of Dieter Roth, graphic designer and major artist (1930-1998) to which Frac devoted an exhibition (“Dieter Roth – Processing the World”) appeared as a perfect subject to analyze the status of design-related objects, and storage conditions as well as exposure. Interviews were carried out, exposing views and comments of a dozen professionals, all involved in various ways with Dieter Roth or conservation. The students edited these interviews as an imaginary discussion that would show the interlocutors' meeting points and divergences.
Published following the exhibition “Du design graphique au Frac Bretagne, entretiens” at EESAB, Rennes from April 24 to May 11, 2014.
