Studio of Type Design and Typography of UMPRUM organizes a presentation of Kyiv Type Foundry, where the founders Yevgen Anfalov and Oleś Gergun will introduce the typefoundry.
The founders of KTF (Kyiv Type Foundry), Yevgen Anfalov and Oleś Gergun, will deliver a lecture in the form of a typographical dérive through the city of Kyiv. Their presentation will explore the city's state of emergency and the founders' personal connection to the place where they grew up. The talk will also contextualize KTF's ongoing typographic research within the broader range of its founders' practices, including design povera, flaneurism, and cultural studies.
