Theatre of the Absurd, dramatic works of certain European and American dramatists of the 1950s and early ’60s who agreed with the Existentialist philosopher Albert Camus’s assessment, in his essay “The Myth of Sisyphus” (1942), that the human situation is essentially absurd, devoid of purpose. The term is also loosely applied to those dramatists and the production of those works. Though no formal Absurdist movement existed as such, dramatists as diverse as Samuel BeckettEugène IonescoJean Genet, and a few others shared a pessimistic vision of humanity struggling vainly to find a purpose and to control its fate.

The Posters

---- Humankind in this view is left feeling hopeless, bewildered, and anxious. -----

This project consists of six posters for the Theater of Absurd and two different type of brochures. The first in a form of a multi-folded brochure and the other in form of an A5 book. For the creation of the artwork was used as main mean a scanner and in some occasions photography.

The common things that all posters have are, firstly the common grey background that was a result of scanning on the empty surface of the scanner and with the scanner's cover open.And the second common things is the typography for which I used a greek version of the

Futura Font.
