Above: Antonio Carlos, Xavier Bermudez, and Sergio Vega, chat in the cafe outside the lecture hall. A warm and welcoming group of people graced this event, conversations were long, frequent, and vibrant. Surprising moment on day three: Argentinian designer Pablo Kunst included a reference to the size of my feet in his lecture. It’s true.(BICeBé 2009 People)
Sí, por favor, uno más… de mate de coca.
Above: The courtyard of the Museo Nacional de Arte in La Paz, Bolivia, site of the BICeBé 2009 Fukuda Hommage exhibition. More images direct from BICeBé, and here, and here. The biennial hosted many more exhibitions, including stunning work by Andrew Lewis, Mehdi Seedi, Bolivian posters (with Marina Córdova Alvéstegui!), a collection of German posters curated by Taschen Editor-in-Charge, Julius Wiedemann, the biennial competition itself, a collection from Spain, and an inspiring display of Obama campaign and election posters. Presentation by Allesandro Manetti and Fabio Filippi from IED Barcelona were especially inspiring, as was the work of their colleague Eric Olivares (IED and Cocina Gráfica.)

Above: Safe back home in Powderhorn, some more rampant and shameless self-indulgence. In all sincerity, what a wonderful gift, the biennial banner signed by all the intrepid assistants (¡shouts!), and more inspiring new friends.
¡El Conejo VIVE ‘muthafukas’! Oh, and that is correct. Er, right. ¡Viva La Paz!
!Viva el diseño de Bolivia! ¡Viva el diseño global!
