Vicious circle

Being stuck in a fundamental inerrant religious pattern and therefore feeling infallible and unmistakable, prone to evading one’s responsibility.

None of them did. Trapped in a net of unscrupulous and avaricious human traffickers, all over the world hundreds of thousands women are accompanied by pain and anxiety – their whole life.

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”!

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.

Kirchenkultur

Unter Verwendung eines heute doppeldeutig klingenden Meisner-Zitates aus den jährlichen Soldatengottesdiensten im Kölner Dom wird die Sakralisierung des modernen Kriegsapparates und zugleich die sexualisierte Gewalt in der Kirche ins Bild gesetzt. Erst ein genauer Blick – etwa auf den Verlauf der Soutanenknöpfe – erschließt die Abgründe der Bildmitte. Der priesterliche Amtsträger selbst ist gesichtslos, auf dem Hintergrund der liturgischen Farbe der Bußzeit dominiert ein Schwarz ohne Zukunft.

Shortsighted

There are so many problems in this world that need our attention and will to change. But we focus on a poor group of people fleeing violence and war, whilst our society is being dismantled by powerful interest groups and our environment is going down the drain for profit of the very same groups. We need to focus instead of listening to self-invested politicians and profit oriented media. We also tend to forget that everything is connected and all the issues can not be seen individually – but together. Most of the blurred words amongst others are direct causes for the refugees in focus.

Go west go waste

Sei westlich – Sei verschwenderisch! 
Der gedankenlose Umgang mit unserem Essen ist nicht nur ein aktueller Trend, sondern hat eine lange Tradition in unseren Breitengraden. Bereits im Barockzeitalter wurden die Menschen durch die Lebensmittelsymbolik in sogenannten »Vanitas-Stilleben« ermahnt, ihre Essensgelüste zu mäßigen. An jener Maßlosigkeit hat sich aber nicht viel geändert. Wir leben heute in einem wahren Schlaraffenland: Eine Auswahl in XXL, 24/7 verfügbar, das Beste, das Neuste, immer frisch, immer billig. Und was wir nicht aufessen können, das schmeissen wir halt weg.

Happy Holidays

Consciousness for climate change is constantly growing. But while we’re willing to make small changes in our everyday lives, there are still many areas that remain completely untouched in their immense carbon dioxide emission. Many people commute to work in order to save greenhouse gasses, but book a transatlantic flight for their hippie-holiday in Thailand. And while it’s the most poolutive way of travel, airtravel makes up only 2% of worldwide greenhouse gas emmision. We need to think bigger then buying bio.

Exhausting Breath

Although we are all aware of the excessive pollution that we face in urban areas, we have, so far, been unable to find a solution for our rising problem. That being said, we seem to be okay with the current situation, as if pollution has become a part of our everyday livelihood and with every breath it consumes us even more.

Donald and I designed this poster together. He is a big fan of my work. We did a tremendous job. Tremendous. The design is really great. We made graphic design great again. Afterwards we played some Golf and ate Chocolate cake. It was a beautiful piece of chocolate cake, I can tell you that.

Every year we produce 35 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide. China is still the worst of all countries regarding these emissions. After that come the USA, India, Russia, Japan and Germany. But what we don’t see, doesn’t worry us.

No work and no future

Migration, unemployment & islamophobia: three of the current decade’s largest topics – especially in Europe. The poster, written from the perspective of a fictional Mohamed (the most common name in the world according to Wikipedia), highlights the bureaucratic and political difficulties of being a recently migrated foreigner seeking for employment: sitting in front of the typewriter, writing the same sentence over and over, slowly spiralling into madness and waiting for any future.
