How has the festival changed since it launched 20 years ago?
Jürgen Siebert: When we started in the mid-Nineties Typo Berlin had two program tracks: the auditorium with the talks and a workshop room. For several years now we’ve had five simultaneous options. We had to broaden out the program for two reasons: we’ve been attracting more visitors each years with a broader range of interests. The main challenge for us is composing the program. We don’t want any attendee to suffer timetable conflicts. Nobody should miss 75 per cent of our offerings. To accomplish this task we’ve clustered all talks and events into five groups: creation, innovation, reflection, typography, and know-how. We’ve tried this approach for a few years now, but this year we make these tags visible to the attendees too.
