In 2018 we dedicated a focus of the festival Graphic Days® to the city of Warsaw in Poland.

Eyes On Warsaw

11-14 October 2018

Eyes On

Within the Graphic Days® festival every year since 2017 we have hosted a country in order to tell its history and its values through graphic works dedicated to daily life, traditions and the culture of its people

 

The second edition of Eyes On is dedicated to Poland and Warsaw, where in the last 20 years has formed a new generation of designers able to evolve this concept of graphics, reflecting on their role in society. Despite a difficult past of political and social battles has deeply marked it, in fact, Poland has restarted also thanks to young designers, graphic designers and artists lined up on the front lines and posters, fonts, zines, logos and books become the symbol of the battle of a country moving towards the reconstruction of an identity. 

The exhibition Wars/zawa presents the contrasts and the facets of a city destroyed by wars and rebuilt to go beyond. Warsaw abandons the past and launches itself towards a future increasingly linked to creativity, entering the international scene thanks above all to visual design.

 

Eyes on Warsaw è stato realizzato in collaborazione con Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland, Polish Graphic Design Week e Consolato Generale della Repubblica di Polonia in Milano.
