2 X 3 (X 4) is a new exhibition format in public space. 4 times a year the 2 by 3 meter space on the façade of Gutleutstrasse 8–12 is to be made use of by designers and illustrators. The classical poster-space medium will be reinterpreted and offer room for experimentation.

Jan Buchczik is a free illustrator living in Frankfurt.

Tobias Freidberg and Paale Lüdcke are building the designstudio Aoki & Matsumoto which is based in Frankfurt.

After spending the last four years in Amsterdam and The Hague, Sebastian Pataki or Mr. Pataki has just returned to his hometown of Frankfurt am Main. The self-described bricoleur is mostly on the lookout for ways, of blurring the boundaries of the graphic design genre even more. He firmly believes a creative approach works across different media, and may lead – due to what might seem to us as dilettantism – to unexpected results. Next to the bricolage of (pop-cultural) myths, texts and images, experimentation and systems thinking are two other main pillars of his creative work.

Timo Lenzen, a graphic designer born in Frankfurt am Main, was the first to use the space. He is active in both the pure and applied arts. Typically he explores the implementation of a wide range of media and their possible combinations, from classical poster design, 3D animation and the building of constructive spaces, back to the flatness of paper.

the project is curated by Adrian Nießler and Catrin Altenbrandt (
