Neon Moiré Show — Episode IX — Dennis Elbers

In partnership with Graphic Matters, we bring a special serie of interviews with researchers, designers and thinkers who presented their work during the graphic design festival. Graphic Matters, founded in 2008, shows every two year how designers shape and influence our perspective on current issues that matter. With the slogan Visual stories you care about, Graphic Matters presented work from over 200 international designers. Through the exhibitions, talkshows and workshops Graphic Matters challenged the visiter to create their own image.

In this episode of the Neon Moiré Show, the second in this serie, Thomas Dahm talks with Dennis Elbers, founder and curator of Graphic Matters, the graphic design festival in Breda. During this live broadcasted conversation they talk about how Dennis Elbers became a curator and why he founded the festival in 2008. Which role graphic design plays in our daily life and the future plans of Graphic Matters. The interview is recorded in the open air exhibition Flags of Peace.

We make you look, but you have to see.
