Poster Monday: Medea
The Poster Monday spot of the day goes to Mina Bakliža from Kragujevac, Serbia, for the poster “Medea”. Mina was born in 1983. She is a freelance graphic designer and is currently doing her master’s thesis at the Faculty of Philology and Arts. So far she has taken part in several national and international art and design exhibitions. These include the Strelka International Design Biennale, Golden Bee, Trnava Poster Triennial, Ecuador Poster Bienal etc. Mina loves creating posters and packaging. The opportunity to do a summer internship in her hometown two years ago has also intensified her interest in theatre and all things related to it. Since then, she has created visual identities for several plays in Kragujevac and Belgrade, too.
In Greek mythology Medea is an enchantress, one of the characters in the myth of Jason and the Argonauts and their quest for the Golden Fleece. Betrayed by Jason, she decides to take hideous revenge on her husband by killing their children, thus killing one part of herself, too.
“My plan was to create posters for three ancient Greek theatre plays in which the main characters are women (Antigone, Medea and Niobe). They all have different origins, personalities, weaknesses and strengths, all of which result in their different downfall.” says Mina.
