Filip Blažek’s poster represents the Czech Republic in an exhibition of 27 posters, all dedicated to the topic of walk or walking. Designers from each country of the EU were selected by respected French graphic designer Philippe Apeloig.The exhibition entitled 27 graphic designers for Europe (27 graphistes pour l’Europe) was opened on the 1st of July 2008, celebrating the beginning of the French EU presidency and the launch of the European Cultural Season. The poster celebrates the fact that cities provide their citizens with pedestrian zones. In these busy areas, a multitude of various languages is often heard. Some are recognised easily, others with difficulty. The poster represents a European pedestrian zone where pedestrians of all EU countries meet in the form of the little figure seen in the traffic sign for the pedestrian zone. In each country, this figure is different. In Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia, a man in a hat walks hand in hand with a girl who has a bow in her hair, French don’t hold their hands and, similarly to Netherlands, it is unclear whether their figure is a woman or a man. Germany is the single country where the traffic sign features a woman with a child. In Spain, Latvia and Bulgaria, only one walker is seen in the sign. Thus, the poster reflects the variety found across Europe.

The exhibition located at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris is organised by the CulturesFrance organisation together with the curator and designer Philippe Apeloig. The opening took place on the 1st of July, 2008 and it was visited by French minister of culture, Christine Albanel. Unfortunately, thanks to chaos in organisation, over half of designers who arrived to France did not attend the opening. All posters (in the size of 4 by 3 meters) are also exhibited at the second Paris airport, Orly.
