- 27th International Biennial of Graphic Design Brno 2016
You’ll find the space steady and monumentally concrete. In front: a beam, behind you, below you – surrounding you. Now put that on repeat and come again (!) You’ll find that the settings are irregular, the content – the same, but the story different. The chronology of yesterday is replaced with a laid-back systematic ordering. Beams and holes and beams and holes and… Would you enter a story from the middle? Scatter the overview? Or read in layers? The system represents a journey of reflections and physical results on threedimensions, repetitions, perspectives and non-linear understandings. The structure is a research into perceptions and spacious matter explored through displays and visual communication, provided by the Amsterdam based graphic platform fanfare.
This event is a part of the Off Programme – open space devoted to workshops, interventions, and other presentations and activities related to graphic design. The authors are solely responsible for the nature of this event. The program is subject to change.
