KesselsKramer is a communications agency based in Amsterdam and London. The agency is internationally recognised for its innovative and cutting edge approach to contemporary marketing, branding and advertising. It also creates its own books, curates events and develops its own brands and services.

Despite the agency’s wide output, one medium has been used more than others throughout the years – the poster. Even with the dizzying amount of other media surrounding us today, there is still something pure and striking about the instantaneous, slap in the face messaging of this age-old medium.

The posters on display at Guildford Lane Gallery – over 150 in total – show KesselsKramer’s communication for internationally known projects, local oddities, cultural events and art shows. The work tends to use irreverence, irony, humour, social commentary and good old-fashioned shock tactics to get their stories across.

Their skewed view of communication and advertising can be seen over three floors. It also includes a selection of the agency’s other work such as its books, films and commercials.

This is the first time such a wide retrospective of KesselsKramer’s work has been shown in Australia. KesselsKramer Creative Director and Partner Dave Bell will be in Melbourne throughout the exhibition. He will host a workshop, seminar and documentary screening at Guildford Lane Gallery, providing further insight into the mind of KesselsKramer.
