In 11–13 May 2018 the Scala cinema will play host to a three-day series of lectures and presentations by world-famous designers and design theorists: Biennial Talks of the 28th International Biennial of Graphic Design Brno 2018.
The Biennial Talks are intended for graphic designers, typographers, illustrators, editors and publishers, advertising agencies, printing offices, libraries, managers, students, teachers, art and design theorists and journalists.
The Biennial Talks will be divided into three theme units reflecting the open concept of the biennial and expanding its spectrum of interest by related disciplines, especially architecture and product design. All three theme units will feature leading representatives of Czech and international design who together will create a lively and dynamic flow of ideas, inviting a mutual interaction and discussion. The opening day entitled Design Essentials will involve the basic elements of design theory and practice, including type, publishing, the magazine medium and colours. The second day, Graphic Design and Quality Commerce, will introduce selected designers working in the field of commerce and collaborating with brands on visual styles, publications and the digital environment. The third and the last day of the Biennial Talks titled Graphic Design from the Perspective of Other Creative Disciplines will present graphic designers whose work involves overlaps into architecture and product design.
The Biennial Talks will be hosted by Adam Štěch, an intentionally renowned curator and publicist, one of the team of curators of this year’s biennial.
The official languages of the Biennial Talks are Czech and English. Simultaneous interpreting will be provided.
