We Interrupt the Programme in Istanbul.

The project focuses on image and text interface and explores the nature of graphic design as a direct component of the communication process. The workshop aimed to discuss and explore the relationship between word and image in both single and multiple narrative, and investigated the role of designer in a wider cultural context, namely in the construction of meaning.
The organisation entailed a seminar for 350 student and teaching staff from different universities of Turkey, a series of lectures, workshops with the Turkish students, an exhibition of the work produced during the workshops, and a radio programme on the event. The publication is the record of the whole activity/event between two cultures. Published jointly by Maramara University, Faculty of Fine Arts and Visual Research.
