Project: ‘Značkanje!’ / ‘Self-branding!’

May 21, 2011

'Self-branding'

First happening:  group exhibition Public Matters, curated by Branka Franceschi at the Center for Contemporary Arts Celje, February/March 2011

‘Self-branding!’ is an initiative for creating our own (human) brands on the basis of how I/you/we  do things.

The people that participated in creating their own self-portraits were asked to express and write their own brands or mark the brand(s) on the list of suggested brands that use for myself.

Read on about some true ‘Branding-yourself’ results:
