The exhibition »stet - on patriarchy and typography« focused on the newspaper of the same name, which explored experimental typography and design theory from a feminist perspective. The work was the result of Katharina Koch's master's thesis at the University of Applied Sciences Mainz. Part of the project was her own typeface called »unfamiliar«. This typeface aims to irritate the uniform ideal of a (type) family and to question »common form characteristics« of a family. To do this, Koch merged Times New Roman with Helvetica Neue to create a new typeface. »stet« is a reaction to the rules of typography established by predominantly male designers and stands for the conscious breaking of these and the self-confidence not to make corrections but to develop one's own position on typesetting and design.
