Mostro 3 Graphic Design Camp | Talk

The third edition of MOSTRO – graphic design camp is dedicated to Europe and the bridges that culture can throw thanks to designers of different generations and backgrounds where politics and economics lag behind for fear and speculation. The festival shows stories and events in which creativity and research are concrete opportunities for collaboration, dialogue and work. The format of MOSTRO continues to insist on exhibitions, talks and workshops in collaboration with the Laboratorio Formentini to tell the figures and crafts of visual communication and graphic arts.  This year the festival also involves two other venues: the Czech Center in via Morgagni and the new Meme gallery in via Crispi, Milan.

Below the talks at Laboratorio Formentini:

Saturday Oct 5
11.00 am → 12.00 am

Guest → Maria Cristina Didero
Moderator → Marco Sammicheli
Prague-based Studio Okolo will hold an exhibition on the visualisation of the texts Maria Cristina Didero wrote in the course of her career as a curator. It is a visual experiment aimed at broadening the relationship between curator and designer to that of visual communicator. The exhibition will be held at Laboratorio Formentini and along with a talk in which the authors and Didero will engage on the themes of the exhibition.
