CAD illustration and consulting within three months,” the team from GIGANT tells GoSee.

GIGANT PRINT WORKS produces high-class & high-end prints in all formats and for large-scale exhibitions, presentations, hotels etc. “Since all of us at the helm of the company Gigant are all professional photographers, we share the love of photography and its best reproduction. But we still pay close attention to techniques such as UV direct plate printing, large-format banner production via latex and solvent inks, sublimation printing and finishing by means of sewing or display production with corrugated cardboard. Which is why we continuously expand our techniques and services around the point of sale.” As an UPDATE partner, GIGANT was also in charge of the excellent navigation of the booth signage at the photo & film salon in Berlin.

Gigant Print Works : Production of the exhibition prints – for the exhibition Foto.Kunst.Boulevard in Berlin's Martin Gropius Bau – present contemporary history and everyday life, heads and curiosities from the world of the tabloid press

GIGANT PRINT WORKS once gain had the honor of accompanying a large exhibition project: For the exhibition 'Foto.Kunst.Boulevard' and the 65th anniversary of BILD Zeitung, a project of the Foundation for Art and Culture in cooperation with BILD and Martin Gropius Bau, Berlin, Gigant Print Works created the photos, printed on Hahnemühle paper, and the wooden frames. The exhibition shows photographs and people from our day and age, contemporary history and everyday life from the areas of politics, society, culture, media, zeitgeist, and the tabloids of the past years.

26 renowned photographers participated: Lars Berg, Daniel Biskup, Michel Comte, Esther Haase, Attila Hartwig, Meiko Herrmann, Kiki Kausch, Tom Lemke, Kevin Lynch, Christoph Michaelis, Andreas Mühe, Konrad R. Müller, Peter Müller, Nigel Parry, Thomas Rabsch, Oliver Rath, Paul Ripke, Holde Schneider, Martin Schoeller, Florian Sommet, Andreas Thelen, Antoine Verglas, Wolfgang Volz, Ellen von Unwerth, Wolfgang Wilde, and Frank Zauritz.

They have all photographed on behalf of Bild Zeitung. It is a small selection from the mass of images which convey to us the way of the world day for day. More subtler than texts, they tell the story of politics, society, culture, media, and zeitgeist. “Tabloid photography has long become a part of our cultural history and the uncountable photos have found entry into our collective memory. The exhibition retraces the history of these images – and with it the stories which each of them tells,” the exhibition team tells us about the exhibition which is still on display thru 9 July in Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin.

Many more large projects for museums, exhibitions and hotels which were handled by the team from GIGANT Print Works Bildproduktion GmbH are available on their website.
