L’association du Salopard (Bastard’s association in English) is a not-for-profit organization based in Lausanne, Switzerland. Founded in 2005, the association was behind the cultural project of Le Bourg, in an old cinema built in 1912 in the historical centre of Lausanne, Switzerland. L’association du Salopard has since organized thousands of events such as concerts, projections, underground festivals and other various cultural activities to become one of the most renowned venues for experimental and underground music in Europe.


Since 2015, Jonas Meier has taken over the graphic identity, posters, programs and artistic interventions. The identity has constantly changed throughout the years, becoming an array of different images, typographies and photographs.


The poster celebrates the 15th anniversary of the association and the relocation of the venue. After spending fifteen years in Le Bourg, leaving the old cinema as an empty room filled with the resonance of more than three thousands bands.
