Step into an Enchanting Realm of Artistic Expression and Imagination Crafted by the Talented Communication Visual Design Students of University of Malang

A PLACE BURSTS WITH IMAGINATION AND CREATIVITY

Initiated in 2013, Posko Visual is an annual poster exhibition with the goal of providing the Indonesian design community with a reliable regional program. Posko Visual is always handled by the same team each year, consisting of third-year Visual Communication Design undergraduates at Universitas Negeri Malang.

After a decade, Posko Visual has evolved into a platform for creative individuals by fostering collaborations with the creative industry in Malang. This is achieved through the provision of art jamming sessions, workshops, webinars, and other ingenious partnerships.

Beginning as a local event, Posko Visual is now striving to expand and gain international recognition. This involves showcasing works by international designers and inviting visitors from around the world to our online exhibition.

Step into the vibrant realm of emotions with Posko Visual 2023
– 'Spectrum of Sentiments.'
This year, Posko Visual revolves around ‘human emotions’ as the exhibition theme. Emotions are complex psychological reactions to stimuli or events that affect a person's thoughts, feelings, and behavior. Basic human emotions include several feelings, such as happy, sad, angry, fear, and disgust. The focus of human emotions in Posko Visual 2023 is on personal feelings that are connected to societal challenges, such as the mental health problems that have drawn significant attention in Indonesia and even internationally.

We are aware that expressing emotions can sometimes be a daunting task, even though having feelings is the essence of being a human.

Our emotions, which have an influence on our moods, profoundly shape our identities. The strong link between emotions and mental health emphasizes the importance of emotions in determining our general well-being. Emotions can support good mental health if they are recognized, expressed, and controlled in a healthy way. On the other hand, repressing or ignoring our emotions might have a negative impact on our mental health.

Hence, we invite all of you — designers and spectators alike — to cherish and embrace all emotions with Posko Visual 2023. Let’s celebrate our feelings together!
