In the experimental DantonDenkRaum (DantonThinkRoom) art meets science, opening a vibrant dialogue between the genres. Specialists from varying fields of expertise in medicine, history, the humanities, art, music, and acting join together to dissect socially relevant topics from Georg Büchner’s drama Danton’s Tod. A surgical cut through the middle of the black and white publication refers to the clinical setting of the play, while the open spine and blood red threads underline this theme. We also created a somber font, Moroï, for the catalogue’s texts.
The typeface Moroï is a homage to dark shards of vampire fangs and owes its gloomy moniker to the ghouls in Romanian folklore. We conceived of this sinister font as part of the program book to Danton’s Death by George Büchner, which takes place in an operating theatre.
