Hockney, Albers, Wesselmann - Vintage Posters from the Munich Olympics | #Pattern Pulp #Posters #Olympics

Pattern Pulp - Vintage Posters from the Munich Olympics:

Horst Antes, Olympics, 1972            David Hockney, Olympics, 1972

Tom Wesselmann, Olympics, 1972

Josef Albers, Olympics, 1972

The 1972 Olympics held in Munich were the first time that the events were broadcast globally through television.  As a result, it became the first time a terrorist attack was seen globally.  Otl Aicher, who designed the 1972 Olympics chose, also for the first time, to use image predominantly in the graphics, rather than text and he commissioned international artists to make editioned prints for the games.
