We’re exited to announce the coming afterlife talk “Fact scream”
by Gaile Pranckunaite & Mislav Žugaj presenting facts and
reactions to the ecological catastrophe that we are facing.
Gaile and Mislav graduated from the Rietveld Academie in 2013
and have since been collaborating as “sprawl”; a name which they
take from William Gibson's “Neuromancer”, where it describes an
urban area spreading from Boston to Atlanta, and its parrallel in
cyberspace. Through comissioned and autonomous works they
are exploring science fiction as a tool for enquiry, and the rapid
rate of environmental degradation.
The Afterlife Of... is a series of talks by graduates of the Graphic Design department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie,
introducing a wild variety of practices that circulate in and around the field of design.
This event is made possible with the generous support of Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.
