Hagen Verleger (DE)
Hagen Verleger (DE) is an independent graphic designer, editor, and researcher. As a designer, he focuses on typography and book design, working mainly with artists, cultural institutions, and publishing houses. In addition to commissioned work, Hagen’s artistic practice, which often revolves around editing and publishing, is informed by a strong interest in the interrelation of fiction and reality: not in the sense of a dichotomy, but rather as different conditions of the world. He is currently working towards a doctorate in the field of philosophy and media studies. During his time at Van Eyck, Hagen initiated “Margaret van Eyck,” an ongoing, collaborative research project at the intersection of institutional critique, feminist intervention, and the politics of (re-)naming.
