postcards

Unconventional postcards inspired by typical postcards from the city of Toruń depicting historical buildings and the major tourist attractions. In this tongue-in-cheek project, I draw attention to the less prominent areas of the historical city, that is to the globally recognizable brands of supermarkets, petrol stations, etc., which constitute the ‘glocal’ architecture of Toruń. The postcards are a local illustration of the process of globalization understood as spread of sameness or, to use popular neologisms, McDonaldization and Coca-colonization of the world.
