- 27th International Biennial of Graphic Design Brno 2016
Manuel Raeder is founder of Studio Manuel Raeder and the publishing house Bom Dia Boa Tarde Boa Noite, based in Berlin and Mexico City. The studio’s works have a wide range of formats exploring the boundaries between exhibitions, ephemera, books, type design, editing, publishing, to furniture design, approaching them as carriers of information, or experimental devices to document or conceit narratives. The studio has developed long standing collaborations with artists such as BLESS, Eran Schaerf, Mariana Castillo Deball, Haegue Yang, Nora Schultz, Leonor Antunes, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Danh Vo and Sergej Jensen. It has been responsible for the communication strategies and graphic identities of several cultural institutions including Kölnischer Kunstverein (2007–2011), Para Site, Hong Kong (2013–2014); k.m, Kunstverein Munich (2010–2015); and Artists Space, New York (since 2009). In 2011, Raeder founded the publishing house Bom Dia Boa Tarde Boa Noite together with Manuel Goller (who left the publishing house in 2014). Since then it has been run by Studio Manuel Raeder, which currently consists of Migle Kazlauskaite, Enno Pötschke, Manuel Raeder and manager Annette Schryen.
