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.

I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in

I have been here from the very beginning of Memefest. I am interested in communication/design for social and environmental change.
I name such communication socially responsive communication.

Broadly speaking I am interested in visual communication, photography, sociological aspects of communication, design and media.

Iam interested in institutionalised forms of communication like for example communication done by design/communication studios and advertising agencies as well as non institutionalised forms of communication like tactical media or broader aspects of media activism.

In a slightly more academic language:

I am interested in how critical social theory can illuminate the complex processes of production, distribution and reception of public (visual) communication in order to generate public communication as a responsible social, political, economic and cultural practice.

I am particularly interested in relations between concepts of response-ability and communication effectiveness, and the social construction of design and other forms of pubic communication as profession, practice and praxis within academia, the market environments and non-institutionalised communities.
