Programme of the biennial

From the outset the Graphic Art Biennial of Szeklerland has assumed the task of formulating the integrating role of graphics. This year the jury considered that it was time to redefine the categories of the classical and experimental techniques markedly distinct in the 1990s, since by now these means have come to exist in permanent interaction and define a single category for submitting artworks.

The Polish School of Poster has always been an unusual phenomenon worldwide. In its best period each poster, regardless of the content it carried, was a fully autonomous work of art. The announcements of films, theatre plays, circus performances or even the common propaganda posters were distinguished by the form of expression, graphic style, lettering, and their approach to the subject.
