A battle or a unity? One World's visuals show both certainties and doubts

What do they mean and how are they related to the topic of safe proximity? The colourful question marks and exclamation points throughout the festival’s visuals and its trailer are a reference to the difficult subject of negotiating one’s identity in a complex and uncertain social climate. Like last year, the festival’s PR campaign has been organized by Studio MT (Matyáš Trnka in collaboration with Matěj Růžička). “Some of us are more secure about their place in the world, but this sense of security can change over time. Sometimes we know what our goal is, while at other times we ask questions and doubt things. And all along, we meet people with whom we have a lot in common at that particular point in time… and we also have the need to define ourselves in opposition to other people. The question marks and exclamation points in this year’s visual design are thus engaged in battle – although from another point of view we see that, regardless of differences of opinion, we are all inhabitants of the same place, the same universe, the same (one) world,” says Matyáš Trnka.
