The 27th Brno Biennial will examine the key phenomena of contemporary graphic design and visual communication. It will loosely follow in the tracks of the 25th edition which opened the Biennial to all forms of graphic design and in particular the previous one, thematically focused and dedicated to graphic design, education and schools.
Is it possible to describe new things with old words? The forthcoming edition of Brno Biennial responds to the metamorphoses and the state of contemporary graphic design; its multitude, variety, vagueness and apparent superficiality. Its ambition is to elucidate both on the general and subjective levels some of the phenomena which define or influence contemporary graphic design. It will attempt to identify, specify and display some of its basic parameters, current themes and motivations.
