Revolution Will Not Be Televised -
- WINGS OF DESIRE -
This project was developed by Ivan Vasilev, Catarina Palma and Lucia Buisel during the first semester of the last year (2011-2012) of the degree in communication design in the Faculty of Fine Arts-Lisbon. The editorial exercise has its foundation in the development of a visual narrative, which is presented in the form of a magazine, surrounding themes of the contemporary history related with the revolutions that occurred during the last five decades. For this purpose the group chose the theme BERLIN - WINGS OF DESIRE, that was the point of departure from which all the period, since the construction until the fall of the berlin wall, was captured. The project was divided into two major phases:
First: Edition 0 of the MIR magazine which is an editorial object and the result of the final phase of research surrounding the subject. It is formed by a timeline that represents the greatest events connected to this subject whether in a straight way or devious one. A photographic timeline that documents the period regarding the three decades of the berlin wall existence, and several biographies of relevant cinema and photography celebrities, that have a careful and poetic way of looking at the two corners of a divided europe.
Second: MIR magazine nº1 presents on a wide scale the contents suggested in the nº 0, following the same path regarding organization. Along with these objects, the group also developed a cover for the special edition of the movie Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders; The Mirror by Andrey Tarkovsky and a cover for the CD "HEROES"- symphony by Philip Glass.
