Love for Memefest posters*

Traditionally Memefest puts special attention to the poster medium for each festivals promotional campaign. It's probably the love for paper and a visual communication tool which is tightly and historically connected to social movements. But it's also the potential effectiveness of the poster which is important. Every year we choose to work with someone whom we like and whose work we respect. It's a interesting process for us too. It makes us visually articulate the festival concept and pushes us further in the process of understanding it's social and cultural relevance.

So here we go: beautiful and strong, this three posters represent different perspectives of this years theme LOVE:CONFLICT:IMAGINATION. The plan was to create a visual poem, a open narrative that leaves enough space for subjective interpretation and active narration, while still remaining consistence to our theme which connects the personal with the social.

We will print posters in the next few days. They will be distributed in Ljubljana, Maribor, Koper, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Rio, Bogota, Belgrade, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and different cities in the Netherlands. This distribution will be made in collaboration with Memefest nodes, friends and partner organizations: Pina, Pink Sweater and Loesje.

You will be able to get this posters at the Radical communication event in Nijmegen, which will be held in beginning of June 2011, till than, enjoy if you see them in the streets around the world.

ABOUT MEMEBLOG

Hey, welcome to the official Memefest blog!

Since 2003 we have been using a blog platform as tactical media to reflect, critique, comment and inform around the broad field of communication. Now in 2010 with our newly conceived on-line platform we hope that through time this space will evolve in a collaborative blog media with a wider group of contributors to the global discourse around social responsibility of media and communication. Stuff that you can find here is either original or carefully and originally edited from other sources.  There is a good chance that you will find things that will be of good use for you too if you follow us more regularly.

Of course we look at Memeblog as a dialogic platform. Your comments are encouraged and mostly welcome.

If you feel like collaborating in this: drop us a line: memefest at memefest dot org.
