Ungleichgewicht

Menschen neigen dazu, Schwächere zu ihren Gunsten auszubeuten. In jedem von uns steckt ein kleines Stück dieses Menschenpopcorn fressenden, gesichtslosen Monsters.

Empty Ideas

Many African children (and non african) have chronic hunger. Situation that puts them at disadvantage and their life expectancy is very low. This terrible situation generates, among other undesirable consequences, the development of their life.

Peace?

The background why I created it: The most of people in the world long for a peaceful and happy life without guns and blood. But to be the different Union there are different conflicts of interest, in this situation, some super nations arbitrary interfere others. For example the Iraq War 2007 and today’s Syrian War.

This poster deals with the way we depict ourselves on social media. It exaggerates the idea of losing oneself when not online.

Truth

A person is noticibly nervous and even frightened by what reveals itself on the table after the package is opened – the person is frightened so much that he or she almost does not dare to look at it.

My idea deals with the individual and his or her fear and unwillingness to accept personal responsibility for the (often brutal) truth in his or her own life. The opportunity to bear this responsibility reveals itself not only in difficult situations but also in seemingly trivial ones. I believe that avoiding your responsibility for the truth has severe individual and global consequences.

»WHAT YOU EAT«

Stomach and brain are strictly connected, and every sensorial experience is assimilated and transformed into emotions by those two essential parts of our organism. For this reason, every time we feed our body we also feed our soul.

Kieler Plastik

There are millions of birds and hundreds of thousands of sea mammals dying around the world because of the waste in the oceans. A lot of animals confuse plastic particles with food and starve to death, the stomach full of plastic. For example there are 95% of fulmars dying with plastic in their stomachs (27 particles per bird).
I quote a poster from Pierre Mendell for the “Kieler Woche”, a sailing regatta and a big public festival at the German Sea. I changed the text and substituted the paper-sail by plastic-sail.

On the other Side

Trying to reach the other side of the Mediterranean Sea, hoping to find a better life, refugees often pay a high price; their own lives. They might reach another side, but a side, which does not have landing shores.

Cage

In many Islamic countries women rights are suppressed, there are too many rules and they have to dress in overall burkas that look like restraining cages, exposing only eyes that resemble a small prison window revealing a trace of light. This appeal is intended to loosen the restrictions on women.

(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.

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!“).

#•••––•••

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.

Fuck the Wage Gap

In 2015, women in the United States were paid roughly 79¢ for every dollar men were. While this image depicts one regional statistic, the broader objective is to call attention to the myriad injustices faced predominantly by women in the workforce. In addition to unequal pay, issues like sexual harassment, biased dress codes, and lack of paid and/or adequate family leave continue to plague workers throughout much of the world.

Hangers-on (hangers-on are half nazis)

Not considering yourself a Nazi does not mean you’re allowed to be rassistic towards others in public. Same as the sentence „I don’t have anything against foreigners, but …“ often ends with the complete opposite opinion. This is a poster to remind all the concerned citizens on what the other people really think about their behaviour.

Libertas, Securitas, Justitia

“Libertas, Securitas, Justitia” lautet das Motto der EU-Grenzschutzagentur Frontex.
Ihre Einsätze im Mittelmeerraum sind völkerrechtlich bedenklich und reduzieren dieses Motto auf einen einzigen Begriff:
Sicherheit um jeden Preis.

The clean slate is filthy and oozes with guilt and pain. Europe is playing a spineless game of ignorance and refusing to help. There are no other rules to stick to, besides building the walls tall enough and decorated with wires and spikes all the way.

Zwangsprostitution

Allein in Europa werden über 500 000 Frauen gewaltsam zur Prostitution gezwungen. Mit ihrem Handel machen Menschenhändler einen Umsatz von etwa 10 Mrd. Dollar im Jahr. Rechtsstaatliche Maßnahmen dagegen verpuffen meist im Dschungel aus Bürokratie, Korruption und Aussage-Angst auf der Opferseite. Und wenn doch mal eine den Mut beweist, etwas auszusagen: wer glaubt schon einer Hure?

Rape

Daily, throughout the whole world, not only in India, there are crime scenes of brutal rapes.
My work calls for the observer to reflect, but still gives them the freedom to imagine the extent of the serious injuries of a rape victim.
At the same time the ever increasing red tones – the strongest being the word “rape” visualizes the damage which is irreparable.
