Abstract

In the series La Casa De Papel (Eng: Money Heist), which was released in 2017, a group of robbers robbed the Royal Mint of Spain (Banknote Printing House), in which the “Euro” banknote was printed under the leadership of their nickname “Professor”. According to an error-free plan, which was prepared by the “Professor”, instead of stolen ready money from the mint, the team consisting of 8 people will print € 2.4 billion in 11 days and they will receive these money. For this reason, the “Professor” does not see their actions as a theft. The term autographsy, which combines graphic design and autopsy, was first used by Alper Raif İpek in the videoart work “AUTOGRAPHSY / OTOGRAFSİ”, which was exhibited at the 3rd Istanbul Design Biennial in 2016. İpek carries out his own autopsy by examining a book made up of images representing himself in this video, layer by layer with the tools used in the production of graphic design. The autographsy technique was applied to the La Casa De Papel series heist. According to the techniques of graphic design field applications; heist, plan and target amount layer by layer were examined and calculated. According to the results obtained, evaluation was made about the series.
