'Hugs' is the title of the latest work by Julia SCHWARZ c/o WILDFOX RUNNING for @Pictoplasma's Character Flags Challenge. This year's conference takes place in August in Berlin. “The story of Pictoplasma and flags has come a long way: From the neon banners that distinguish all our festival's participating art spaces or the waiving of majestic character insignia over Berlin's Haus der Kulturen der Welt, to recruiting participants with Character Collision propaganda in front of The Hague's Ministry of Environment and showcasing the many meticulous textile creations by the likes of Sue Doeksen or El Grand Chamaco, featured at various art exhibitions around the globe.”
And for FREUNDIN, Julia illustrated on the topic of 'Gender Medicine'.
