Whether digital media like facebook or twitter will set an end to flyers is not sure. What’s sure is, that flyers are not just transmitting a message, but they are often simply worth seeing them for their design. So why not collect them?
Mike Riemel has been collecting more than 1 million flyers from 90 countries for more than 25 years. In the exhibition “Flyer Soziotope” in the be Berlin Stadtladen some of them can be seen. There is also available a book: “Flyer Soziotope. Topographie einer Mediengattung” (by Mike Riemel), which shows around 2,500 images. Further it documentes 25 years of the party- and clubbing-scene.
