The Monument Series was inspired by Hacks' visit to Kiev in early 2012 where he visited the memorial complex commemorating the German-Soviet War. Struck by its monumentality, he started to approach this structure artistically and his research brought him to similar architecture. The series aims to show references between the objects and is an example of Hack’s desire to explore subjects in ways that are research-led as well as intuitive. This often leads to new forms of artistic typographies.
