How do we perceive the poster today? How is its presentation evolving in the face of acceleration, technological development and virtual environments? The editor Lenka Sýkorová tries to answer these questions in the English edition of this publication, which is a continuation of the Virtual Biennale Prague project, which since 2007 has been based on the principles of non-verbal and intercultural communication. This international project fulfils the need for a non-commercial poster exhibition that is not burdened with a large institutional and production burden.

The poster is seen as a means of communication in public space, so this medium becomes even more important in the presentation in the Mimochodem Gallery.
