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.
Despite the social consensus for equality between women and men, the actual gender equality has still not really been enforced. There are many hidden and rather inconspicuous scenarios of gender discrimination, but one of the most obvious injustices is the difference in payment between men and women engaged in the same occupation. And this is only influenced by a small physical difference. And even more important: it doesn´t have any affect on the performance in any way. It´s just ridiculous, that´s why we want to put things right with this poster!
These days the meaning of help is changing in social and political fields. So you cannot rely on people. When you ask someone for help, you will often not get help without giving something in return. People want to achieve their own targets with their help or harm you.
Women have less legal rights so they become more often victims of violence. In many countries, in many areas there are no clear laws or regulations to punish domestic violence, although it is a common problem. Domestic violence is generally regarded as a private matter not to be accepted by national jurisdictions.
In our society pharmaceuticals are taken for granted and therefore consumed thoughtlessly. We should give more thought to their effect on society and our own quality of life. Do we really want to get older and older? The poster is also an allusion to Niklaus Stoecklins poster for Gaba in 1927.
Has genetically modified food already shown up in your daily life? Are you enjoying horrible genetically modified food right now?
I do not believe that genetically modified technology can be perfect. Many examples are proving that our health is being threatened by the variations of plants’ DNA. Therefore, let’s pay close attention to the GM food around the world.
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.
Don´t worry. You can be sure that German authorities and agencies will pursue their work with absolute thoroughness and order. All work procedures are kept to as required, so an archiving of all files and records in an exemplary manner can be guaranteed.
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.
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.
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.
The Japanese even have a name for it: Karojisatsu, suicide from overwork. A society that places achievement over the human being isn‘t only the reality in Japan. Even though we have no word for it yet, we need to change something. Otherwise we will need one very soon. I demand: Let’s distance ourselves from the pressure of achievement, back to more quality of life.
