19.00 h – Kristýna Kulíková
Kristýna Kulíková is a graphic designer currently based in Prague. Most of her output is tied to both local and global music scenes in one way or another. In her work, the formal language of speculative design blends with the means of deconstructed typography and URL deposits combined with craftworking methods. Information overload is rendered into spatial hallucination. Experimentally-conducted punchlines attack our mind with the strength of the freshest of memes.
20:00 h – Tres Tipos Gráficos
