Walter Ruttmann - Advertisements

Running time: 25'

Short animated films with an element of advertising. Just as with the “Opus,” here we also have mostly moderate surfaces which take the shapes of geometric forms. To suit the needs of the advertisements Ruttmann broadened his spectrum to even more abstract forms and lines. Ruttmann created advertisements for Exelsior tyres, Kantorowicz liqueur, and GESOLEI exhibition in Düsseldorf. The pictures include advertising slogans.
