Wer war Leibniz? Kampagne zum Leibnizjahr 2016
The objective of the campaign in 2016, the year of Leibniz, was to make Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz’s life work come alive in the form of an overview. Various types of advertising media presented the scholar who died in Hanover in 1716. He was most frequently seen in the form of life-size posters in üstra trains and stations. An üstra train completely covered in the baroque “Leibniz look” drove across the city. www.wer-war-leibniz.de
