A visual artist known for her cultural critiques, Kruger designed this poster advertising New Order's music video (directed by Johnathan Demme) using her signature melding of black and white photography and bold typeface. She was one of the many influential artists employed by Michael Shamberg to collaborate with the band. New Order is the band formed in 1980 by the remaining members of Joy Division after losing their singer.
