Resistance is Futile!!!

Resistance is Futile

17 May until 18 June 2017

Krack! Studio, Yogyakarta


Attention Citizens of Earth:


This month Krack presents a new project called “RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!!!” The title of course refers to the famous statement by the Borg in Star Trek films; “We are the Borg… You will be assimilated… Resistance is Futile.”  (proof here)

For this exhibition we invited friends from print studios around the world to design a poster for a fictional science fiction movie. They interpreted the theme in all sorts of ways; some explored how contemporary global politics is unfolding: do we have hope for the future? Or is resistance futile? Others explored the medium of screenprint itself: is the screenprinted poster still a medium for resistance movements, or has it become a luxury commodity for the Art market? The works have all been executed in eye-popping sci-fi detail. The future awaits you; Resistance is Futile!

We figured, why stop at the sci fi posters? Why not build a spaceship?
