Angewandte Festival is the annual festival of the University of Applied Arts Vienna (“Die Angewandte”). This year’s visuals pair the school’s house typeface Delphia with a number of more expressive typefaces, including Zephyr Italic, GlyphWorld Desert, and Zorn. The concept and the design of the “AInimals” were developed by Pauline Louise Noemi Jocher, Marlene Kager, Maris Nisu, and Maximilian Prag. From the festival website:
The University of Applied Arts Vienna is committed to counteracting the production conditions in the arts and cultural sectors, which are massively restricted by the current situation. The Angewandte Festival 2020 will therefore take place and focus on alternative exhibition venues in digital and public space. Even if students, teachers and members of the university cannot, as usual, exhibit their works in the university buildings and invite participants to join discussions, debates and celebrations, we want to use the end of this challenging semester as an opportunity to produce new works and projects to be exhibited and discussed publicly. By moving this year’s Angewandte Festival into virtual spaces, we do not intend to proclaim a brave new digital world, but to react critically, awake and curious to the current situation.
The Angewandte Festival will take place 23–26 June, 2020, in digital as well as public spaces and will present the manifold activities of the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
