We are the people

This poster depicts a political slogan chanted in the Monday demonstrations in 1989/1990, as a protest against the GDR government.

Nowadays the masses have found the internet to voice protest and express their opinion. Anytime and immediately on can exert influence through online petitions, in comment sections or by hitting like buttons. The poster shows this shift in our culture of demonstration by a swarm of mouse pointers and thereby shows how a large number of individual elements can shape the public understanding.

Mickey spies children without parental consent The Walt Disney company has been fined to pay 3 millions dollars after that the Federal Trade Commission discovered that the Walt Disney company collected illegally informations about children registered on a children Disney website. About 1 million of children are concerned. This informations were used and published by an another Walt Disney online games website. For the americans laws, a website needs the parental consent if it want to collect, use or publish them. The FTC was very strong on this subject, telling that this kind of infractions are very serious and severely punished.

The poster shows an another unknown face of Walt Disney. Mickey is black, dirty, frightening with this big dripping sentence written on it, taken from the fiction “1984″ written by Georges Orwell telling the story of a supervised, secured and undercontrol society. This poster speaks about an another aspect of the “wonderful world of Walt Disney”!

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!

(K)ein Blatt vor den Mund nehmen. *

It is so comfortable to be dependent. Laziness and cowardice let people follow others’ opinions and aims. Governments or companies can use us for their benefits. The more we keep silent, the more others raise their voices. It is so uncomfortable to have an own opinion. The shame is liberated; the thoughts are covered by leaves: The poster shows the change of censorship in our society.

*»Kein Blatt vor den Mund nehmen«(literally: Not putting a leaf in front of your mouth.) means to speak out liberate, directly and shameless.

Let your opinion out

Everyone has the right to a voice. Give your opinion a “reason” to be heard. Stand to your opinion even if not everyone accepts it. Say what you think, even if censorship might prevent you from doing so.

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!“).

Where the hell

Death penalty is a controversial topic. Despite our worldwide humanist society, there are still countries that try to atone for almost medieval ways of punishment of certain crimes by the death of the accused. The question of how it can be fair to repay an injustice, such as the death of a person caused willfully by the same injustice is something unacceptable and certainly incomprehensible. We believe that with thorough and conscientious thinking, everyone should come to this conclusion. The fact that Germany is no longer in use of this inhuman punishment shouldn’t distract from the fact that many other countries are still carrying out this procedure.

This poster is about freedom of speech.
It is the inalienable right of every human being who is denied of his in some countries.
The dove with beak tied is the metaphor of man under pressure that he could not express his opinions freely.

Guns don´t kill people, hoodies do

The case of Trayvon Martin, a 17 year old black teenager recently killed in Florida by George Zimmerman (an armed neighborhood watch captain) and the related comments about the dress codes of an especially black and Latin American youth illustrates how the Conservative mind in the U.S.A. works. Guns can never be the problem, so something else must be the problem.

Darfur

In Darfur a civil war has cost 300.000 human lives and let 2,5 million people to flee the country since 2003. The government backed mounted militias “Dschandschawid” destroy villages, massacring and raping the population. Famine and draught further worsen the lives of the people. In the media everyday life we don´t hear much about Darfur. Many can´t even place the word. Because of this “Darfur” for me stands for the injustice in the world that we don´t know about or possibly don´t want to know about. It might be worth it to reflect on what is truly important in life and the world.

Clean-Cut Case Racism

Complexions are just colour fields, why would you get irritated by them? Why would you even segregate them or be hostile to them? Who decides from which colour field someone belongs to the good ones or the bad ones?
It is necessary to stop the segregation and bring those colours back together.

Jobs for migrants

Making pictograms visible in urban areas of feelings and thoughts of those who left their home countries and live in a new country is the aim of migrantas. Key elements and similarities between the experiences of migration are emerging after a careful analysis of drawings from various workshops. The central motifs are graphically and artistically implemented by migrantas in pictograms – a visual, understandable language for all.

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.
