LAUBA – People and Art House / 9-24 January 2017

ULUPUH Gallery / 16 January – 13 February 2017


This year, the open call received a large number of submitted entries, both from Croatia and abroad, and the selection committee consisting of Boštjan Botas Kenda, Dejan Dragosavac Ruta, Igor Stanišljević, Olivera Stojadinović and Ana Tomić selected 26 works to be exhibited at Theme and 140 works for Review in the following categories: visual identity, printed promotion/communications, publishing, packaging, signage, advertising, specific segments of visual communications – independently, design in film or electronic media. The selected works arrive from Australia, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Japan, The Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, USA, Slovenia, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey and Croatia.

Like every edition thus far, this one will have an International Jury selecting and presenting five awards (Zgraf Grand Prix, Zgraf 1, Zgraf 2, Zgraf Welcome and ico-D Excellence Award) and 10 special diplomas to the best works of Zgraf 12. The Zgraf 12 International Jury consists of Rick Poynor, Radovan Jenko, Vaughan Oliver, Jianping He and Sanja Rocco. The Zgraf Excellence Award – a special honour for a group of exhibitors out of competition will be presented by the Zgraf 12 Selection Committee, and AICA Award – of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA) – will be presented by a jury appointed by the Croatian branch of AICA, consisting of Sandra Križić Roban, Marko Golub and Boris Greiner.

Eduzgraf exhibition of student works on the Zgraf 12 Theme ‘Social Reruns’ is intended primarily for design and visual communication students and emerging, up-and-coming designers. The student exhibition will be presented as a separate segment, along with the works of professional designers in the Zgraf 12 Main Exhibition, consisting of Review and Theme. By including students in the Zgraf Theme, this year’s edition of Eduzgraf is for the first time making an additional outreach to build a bridge between the educational sector, professional design practice and supporting institutions. The aim of the open call was to give an extra boost and kick to young designers and examine their work in comparison to the ones made by professional designers. The selection process for ‘Social Reruns’ Theme Exhibition was conducted by the Zgraf 12 Selection Committee consisting of: Damir Bralić, Antonio Dolić,  Miranda Herceg, Mihaela Richter and Ana Tomić, and they selected 33 works by authors from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Croatia, China, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Serbia and United Kingdom.

Apart from the Lauba exhibition, Zgraf 12 will host a retrospective solo exhibition of the winner of Grand Prix 11, the Swiss design studio Peng Peng (Klaus Fromherz and Martin Geel), at ULUPUH Gallery from 16 January to 13 February 2017. Studio Peng Peng won the Grand Prix at Zgraf 11 with Werkbeiträge / Radne potpore in association with Gelinda Paganini, and this exhibition will be their first solo show in Croatia. Klaus Fromherz (1976) graduated with a degree in graphic design in Luzern and Leipzig, and Martin Geel (1979) with a degree in illustration in Luzern. Ever since its establishment, their studio has been focused on designing all forms of printed materials – posters, postcards, brochures, books – and on making videos, films and animations for installations and exhibitions.


In addition to exhibitions, Zgraf 12 features a rich programme of side events. Eduzgraf, a creative educational platform, aside from the exhibition of student works, will organise professional workshops, Eduzgraf Evenings and Eduzgraf for children and youth.

Eduzgraf professional training workshops include different formats of working with renowned international and local designers and theoreticians and international students of visual communications design and similar disciplines (art history, architecture, visual art). Eduzgraf plans the following workshops: Museum of Future – Fanzine of Future Events, mentored by designers Maja Kolar and Maša Poljanec; Death in Design, mentored by designers and theoreticians Barbara Predan, PhD, and Petra Černe Oven, PhD; and Brief Introduction into the History of Graphic Design and Visual Communications in Our Country 1945-1990, mentored by graphic designer and theoretician Dejan Kršić.

Eduzgraf Evenings will give an overview of the entire programme and connect all the Eduzgraf and Zgraf participants at special events. Eduzgraf Evenings will include student workshop presentations, the Personal Expert programme giving visitors a chance for a one-hour one-on-one conversation with renowned designers and design theoreticians to find out all about their practice and ideas, as well as many other design-related treats.

In addition, Eduzgraf will host a one-day international symposium under the name of Practicing Design, organised by the Croatian Designers Association (HDD) and VERN’ University of Applied Sciences, as part of the two-year Practicing Design project (Erasmus +) which focuses on designer training and promotion of a practical approach to design. Practicing Design project partners are Austria (designaustria), Croatia (Croatian Designers Association, VERN’, Prostoria) and Macedonia (Public Room, EURM, Zavar).

Eduzgraf for children and youth will include weekend workshops for different age groups in association with Lauba’s programme Laubica, as well as specialised guided Zgraf 12 tours for primary and secondary schoolchildren.

And finally, another programme to be presented is Zgraf Words, presenting for years now a selection of the finest theoretical and practical examples from the design profession. ‘Social Reruns’, the 12th Zgraf theme, opens up a series of possible interpretations and analyses of current design practices, live in a series of lectures given by the International Jury members and other experts from the field of design and visual communications.
