Work from Slovenia

An exhibition of awarded pieces from the past three Biennials of Slovene Visual communications at the
23rd International Biennial of Graphic Design Brno 2008, 18 June – 19. October

Twenty years after visual communications became a course at the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts, the Brumen Foundation launched the 1st Biennial of Slovene Visual Communication. Many things have happened in the meantime, including a new country and a new social system. This lively revival resulted in increasing demands for new visual messages. “Fast-food” design, which decreases inter-personal communication effectiveness, affects the quality of life, and becomes disturbing and violent, began to dominate. Therefore, Slovenian design desperately needed a periodical critical overview of and public awards for achievements.

November 29 2003 is one of the most significant dates in the contemporary history of Slovenian design: the opening of the 1st Biennial of Slovene Visual Communications marks the beginning of the continuous professional assessment of creative quality in visual communication. With the Biennial, the young discipline has gained an opportunity to check, compare, and get an overview of the designers and their work, and to gain recognition of design knowledge, know-how and skills.

The Biennial of Slovene Visual Communication is a specialised and expert-based overview of visual communications. All applications are assessed by a special committee of domestic experts, who select the best for subsequent exhibition, and refer them to an international jury. The judges award the best works in each category and the work which fulfils all the international criteria of excellence is awarded the highest prize – the Brumen Grand Prix for the best visual message of Slovenia.

The Biennial of Slovene Visual Communications has been held three times (2003, 2005, 2007). The work, which received awards, by such prominent international designers as Anna Berkenbusch, Pierre Bernard, Max Bruinsma, William Drenttel, Jessica Helfand, Cyprian Koscielniak, Bo Linnemann, Bruno Monguzzi, Aleš Najbrt, Jean-Françoise Porchez, Rick Poynor, Erik Spiekermann, and Wieczyslaw Wasilewski, is finally being presented outside Slovenia – at an exhibition in Brno.
