SILENT ARMY REPRESENTED IN AMAZING PRINT SHOW IN INDONESIA
Opens 6pm Wednesday 17 May,
Exhibition continues until 18 June
Lapangan Minggiran, Yogyakarta
For this exhibition we invited friends from print studios around the world to design a poster for an imaginary science fiction movie. They interpreted the theme in all sorts of ways; some explored how contemporary global politics is unfolding: do we have hope for the future? Or is resistance futile? Others explored the medium of screenprint itself: is the screenprinted poster still a medium for resistance movements, or has it become a luxury commodity for the Art market? All the works have been screenprinted at Krack in eye-popping sci-fi detail. The future awaits you at Krack!
