The Color of Care (NIVEA Beauté, 1998)

There are still many harmful and carcinogenic substances, such as parabens, formaldehyde releasers (diazolidinyl-urea and imidazolidinyl), propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol (PEG) derivatives or alumninium in cosmetics. What is being advertised is care and naturalness, but in reality the products are rather natural crude oil.

Identity

This poster was made to talk about the absence of opinion and judgment of the people. The crisis of identity when a person just repeats and follows directions without a real personal point of view. We can see this in current social and political movements, which people blindly follow because this is the “correct form” but don’t really question anything.

#•••––•••

Tens of thousands of refugees are on their dangerous journey across the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. In recent years, the number of »boat people« has increased drastically, and with it the number of drowned refugees. The »SOS« sign on the horizon of the Mediterranean Sea is a call for help and a bearer for hope at the same time and requires support.

Gorilla

East meets West

East meets West’ by Gorilla is a comment on the clash of Western and Middle East culture. In the West, there has been a lot of discussion about prohibiting traditional Eastern clothing like the burqa and the niqab. There seems to be a fear of the anonymous. On the other end of the scale, exhibitionism, voyeurism and pornography is becoming an increasingly dominant part of Western culture. One can question oneself what is more offending to the other.

The poster is against animal cruelty. While the wolf stands for animals in general, the dance steps symbolize the ease and cynicism with which man is doing so.

The capital

The end of an era narrated through the fall of a vincible superhero.
An icon of the 20th century showing his visual strength for the last time before the crash.
A logo immortalized in the moment, this means changes.

Mass Destruction

The industry entertainment is functional to the industry of death. This poster attempts to denounce the frivolity of human pain, the human misery commercialized as mass entertainment.

We are!

We are the people! (Wir sind das Volk!) The chants of the german reunification were the term for the peaceful break, now they are used by racist movements to demonstrate clumsy pure hatred:
“We are full (Wir sind voll), there is no space for refugees, no space for new ideas. We are full of fear of the unknown, full of the wrong answers to the wrong questions.”

You are filled! Sober up!

All a lie

The Poster has two levels of meaning:
A direct one – when the poster – surrounded by advertising messages – sticks on a billboard.
And an epistemological one – on the critical definition of the objectivity of the »Radical Constructivism«.
But a good poster explains itself.

War Notes!

To some of the leaders of the world the idea of war is the same as the music notes which they play whenever they want without considering the consequences, and as a result, countless civilians and soldiers die without a reasonable cause!

Moderate Rebels

This quick sketch (originally drawn on a sticky note) is an ironical approach to clarify the paradox and misleading term “moderate rebels“. A disguised person sits in front of a TV. Holding a rifle in one hand and a TV remote in the other one. This guy does not seem to be in the mood for a rebellion. His dullness is emphasized by the words „Heute kein Bock!“ (engl. “Not Today!“).

Putinocchio

The character of Pinocchio, known for lying and making up stories, projected onto the Russian president Vladimir Putin.
A personality, who manages to betray the whole world. One significant example is the current crisis in the Ukraine.
A deceitful and seemingly cooperative attitude can sometimes be more violent than visible open brutality.

Monosanto

Worldwide, more and more industrial farming is carried on. Regardless of risks to man and nature monocultures are used from genetically modified seeds. Monsanto is heavily involved in this development. The agricultural chemical company is a global leader in biotechnology and has 90% of the patents of the currently cultivated genetically modified organisms.

Standby Fukushima

Die Katastrophe für Mensch und Natur in Japan ist nur wenige Monate alt, aber medial weitestgehend schon wieder vergessen. Das Plakat soll uns das Schicksal und die noch ungeklärten folgen für Mensch und Natur wieder ins gedächtniss rufen. Zugleich weißt das Plakat auch darauf hin, das die atomare Katastrophe in fukushima nicht behoben quasi nicht “abgeschaltet” ist.

According to Wikipedia, there are more than 30 ongoing military conflicts all over the world – excluding riots like the current ones in Turkey. Most of the conflicts are still faded out from public attention, even though social media puts us into the position of observers and confidants.

The explosion of the Chernobyl nuclear power station was the worst industrial accident of any kind in history. Tens of thousands of people have died, and there is more death to come.. Nuclear power’s waste is deadly, causes cancer and genetic mutations, and there is no known way to permanently contain, dispose or neutralize it. Building more reactors simply means death.
