One aspect of the graphic designer’s work is portraying the times in which he lives – intentionally or unintentionally. Of course, this is only half of the story, because there’s no reason why a designer would have to adopt a passive role in all of this. In fact: there’s a strong tradition to visualise dreams and ambitions and as-yet-imaginary possibilities and link them to everyday reality. The designer's work always follows the rules that arise in attempts to explain the world. This Department of Order is about the drive to find new images, forms, words and styles that express world views or change, and expedite and steer the associated historical events.
