When something is printed, we perceive it as real. In this panel discussion, local and international speakers draw out themes from the exhibition of the same name, first shown in Brno in 2016 and newly composed for Melbourne Design Week 2020. Examining fictions, fakes and unpublished works, this discussion explores the ways in which parallel realities can be constructed through graphic design.
