Warm-up on Thursday, 28 July 2016
At 19:00, Viktoriya Grabowska from Poznań/Poland will present her work at this month’s Berlin Typostammtisch.
The talk will be in Englisch and takes place at Café BilderBuch in Akazienstraße 28, 10823 Berlin.
On Friday and Saturday, we will host two typographic exhibitions from recent graduates of the Academy Of Arts, Architecture And Design in Prague, Studio Of Type Design and Typography. These will be in the same space as the festival itself – inside the UdK Medienhaus. The first exhibition, from Andrea Vacovská, is entitled Movie Titles Typography: Opening Credits in Czechoslovak movies 1945—1993. The second is Petra Dočekalová’s Master’s thesis, a revival of traditional Czech sign painting styles. These exhibitions will be accompanied by student work from the UdK TypoLabor.
