EduZgraf student exhibition
Back to Square One
17 March – 05 April 2012
Opening: 17 March 2012, 8PM
Location: Studentski centar, PU Gallery
The international student exhibition Back to square one presents an overview of national and international (mostly regional) student works in the field of graphic design and visual communications.
The title of the exhibition is a paraphrase of the First Things First graphic designers’ manifesto published in 1964 and reassessed in 2000. The manifesto was a reaction to the changes in the advertising industry, graphic design, economy and culture. It challenged all aspects of the designer’s profession and aimed to generate an exchange between the design practitioners, design schools and institutions.
Today graphic design and visual communications form our everyday environment and thus education provides an important place for questioning the role of design and its social priorities. Communication itself is an inexhaustible source for experimenting and creating new meanings that raise questions of the responsibility and influence of design. The aim of this exhibition is to question the forms and goals of projects that were created during designers’ formative years. The theme for the exhibition is not strictly defined so as to enable the selection and exhibiting processes to explore and debate themes, approaches and languages of the new designer’s practices.
Exhibition is open until 5 April 2012
Entrance is free.
