After the announcement of the Festival’s leitmotiv, comes one of the most special moments for us, the presentation of the official poster, a collaboration between photographer Joan Gosa and designer Joan Jarque, both members of the festival team.
How was the creative process for the poster?
As you know the leitmotif of this edition is Counterculture and the poster of the 40th edition is based on that concept. We wanted to make a tribute to all our posters, as well as a tribute to that search for a new view to break away from the authoritarian society, typical of the decade that saw the birth of the Festival in that distant 1973. We opted for a large hand made collage, then photographed and digitally formatted. It takes us to the seventies posters and the counterculture movement of that time.
