Catalogue of an accompanying exhibition of the 22nd International Biennale of Graphic Design Brno 2006. The exhibition critically questions possibilities of organising graphic design exhibitions. Nineteen designers and collectives were commissioned to design a poster for the design exhibition in which they participate. Instead of bringing work from the outside to the gallery, the work is made for the gallery. Instead of recreating the context for the exhibition, gallery conditions are the context for the work. The posters function on two levels: the collection of posters constitutes the exhibition, and copies of the posters are spread around the city to inform visitors about the exhibition.

The booklet includes an essay by M/M Paris on the relevance of posters today, and reacting the concept of the exhibition.

With newly made works by Stuart Bailey & David Reinfurt, Julia Born, Dimitri Bruni & Manuel Krebs (Norm), Peter Buchannan Smith, Sulki & Min Choi, Elliott Earls, Paul Elliman, Experimental Jetset, Éric Gaspar & Marie Bertholle (Éric and Marie), James Goggin (Practice), Harmine Louwé, Kei Matsushita, Luna Maurer, Mevis & Van Deursen, Scott Stowell (Open), Manuel Raeder, Round, and Jon Sueda & Gail Swanlund (Stripe).
