The Annual Exhibition of the Design Section of ULUPUDS 2020

September 19, 2020 | Ivana Nedeljković

The design section of ULUPUDS is an example that convinces us that design shapes the world around us. The present taste of the individual and the individual narratives of the artist focus the attention of the observer, but it also shows the unique way in which a sensation corresponds with the taste of the wider audience and emerges from the created visual identity.

The works were created on the platform of artistic-theoretical and social-humanistic knowledge with data from current geopoetics. Thus, the design shows the society we live in, that is, the nature of the society shaped by the will of today's man, his interests, motives, and the very important thing - habits and everyday living.

The long-themed and elaborated relation art - life is shown in action. The exhibition further directs us towards thinking about the question of the extent to which modern man has a need for art.

What is noticeable is that this year's exhibition shows the propositions of interdisciplinary design, not a manifestation of strictly separate techniques, and hence separate categories of design, but proposes an interdisciplinary position related to the connection and interaction of design disciplines, but also something more interesting - interdisciplinary multimedia communication of art and design.

The first part of the exhibition is a period from Sep 24th to Oct 12th and the other from Oct 15th to Oct 30th.

(Due pandemic situation Student Cultural Center has prescribed dimensions which can not be more than 5 visitors in the gallery at the same time, with wearing masks and maintaining distances.)
