  • CommentaryThis poster by Walter Kampmann is one of the few attempts at using Expressionism for advertising. It was an attempt doomed to failure. While the use of Expressionist design elements in political and cultural publicity was directly related to its content, in advertising it was nothing more than fashionable ingratiation. Visualizing a luxury object in the style of the political struggle of the day certainly missed its target audience.

This poster by Walter Kampmann is one of the few attempts at using Expressionism for advertising. It was an attempt doomed to failure. While the use of Expressionist design elements in political and cultural publicity was directly related to its content, in advertising it was nothing more than fashionable ingratiation. Visualizing a luxury object in the style of the political struggle of the day certainly missed its target audience.
