All this is accompanied with (fictional) texts by Schmidt-Rottluff himself, who talks about his work, his life, his love and the repressions by the Nazis. The visual style of the application tries to reflect the style of Schmidt-Rottluff and his time: Thus we worked with established fonts of the time, based on Rottluff's language of colors and forms.
