From time to time, he lectures, organises workshops and teaches at various colleges in Germany and abroad. Hort on Hort: “we love to work on projects that help people to understand information.

From Hort to Heart


As we went to press, Eike Koenig hadn’t yet decided what he is going to present at TYPO, or how. “I normally decide shortly beforehand. Everything I do and am fits into the theme of “passion”, so ...” Ideally, he’ll present something on the stage of the Great Hall that characterises Hort, “a large, colourful playground. A place without limits, of complete openness, great trust and unbounded opportunity. An unconventional place to create – that allows anything and demands everything”.
