The revolution won’t be led by red flags and the sound of “Bella Ciao”. We asked Lazar to tell us how would the Revolution look like. To answer this we need to look closer to the history of the major and/or problematic political moves – seen trough the graphic design, from the Romanian Fascists, revolutionary aesthetic of socialist Yugoslavia, Laibach, Gazimestan meeting and Otpor. Troughs the intriguing show case of the most controversial examples of the 20th century politic design, Lazar comes to the contemporary political practices and its visual identity… and to the forecast of the Revolution, that is about to be built, and to be designed.
