Bound to strict aesthetic approaches, these posters are Kieser’s way of making contact with people and leading them to a responsible form of creation and interaction. Postermaking can be both a matter of power and a delightful and intelligent method of liberal communication. Instructive, not destructive – that is the central issue of his art.’
