The poster is the art of the present tense. The message of a poster concerns with only one particular moment: it would be meaningless in an earlier time and would be invalid after the announced event, as it does not make any sense in other places. Posters are the genre of here and now - “hic at nunc” as the Latin words say, it is on the point of intersection of time and place, his fate is short-lived. Not all of the poster designers are happy with this characteristic of the poster, we envy the autonomous artists and also we dream to work for the eternity. I want to suggest to the students of the workshop to think together about the time-space-poster relation and to describe somehow his or her personal connection to the theme.
