Our relationship with 4th nature
The focus of my poster is beauty and how we deal with wild, urban nature, which flourishes in locations that are heavily influenced by humans (wasteland, old industrial areas). This so-called 4th nature does not fit into our classic concept of beauty due to its rampant and unadorned aesthetics and is often not given much attention. Nonetheless its heterogeneity enables one great biodiversity in urban areas and creates the opportunity to experience wild nature close to city-centers. However, these areas mostly only exist temporarily, as they fall victim to new construction projects in the course of urbanization and densification.
Verbal abuse is just as harmful as the physical abuse. You have to correct children wisely and with love.
The poster is about the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. It shows its negative effects on human health.
Faster! When do we finally arrive?
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.
Not being normal is awesome
We’re living in the times when social norms are being reconsidered and broadened, which is amazing and promising. However, when I was reading articles about the widening definition of normal, I was thinking that there would always be individuals who wouldn’t fit into the new normal paradigm. I believe there is a catch in this discussion, by defining normal we are also highlighting our differences. So, the idea of this poster was to show that not belonging could be an incredible experience, too, and there was nothing abnormal with not being normal. The poster is a bit ironical, as the creature is setting its own tail on fire (or biting it, the interpretation is up to the viewers). The poster was hand-drawn with acrylic on paper.
Freedom of Expression
Each individual has the right of freedom of speech and expression. The freedom of information is the most important threat for antidemocratic regimes; hence, attacks against the freedom of speech are a daily occurrence on all continents. I have chosen the image of the famous videogame Pac-Man of the 80ies. Pac-Man consists of bullet casings and chases a pencil, the instrument of writing and the symbol of the freedom of expression, and tries to eat it.
„Love your neighbor“ seems to have another meaning
Unsolved Payments, which apparently nobody knows about. Corruption scandals cast a shadow over the world of soccer. My poster puts the trouble in explaining of the German Football Association in a nutshell by imitating the rhetorical skills of Franz Beckenbauer.

This poster reflects our neglect with the planet present situation, the unnecessary excessive pollution that we generate and the direction we are taking.
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.
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.
The aim of the poster is to raise awareness about the risks of one of the most commonly used digital tools. This risk is caused by the lack of information about data security. Even people with a higher knowledge, the security of digital security is ignored. At some point, a multitude of users seem to be through user-friendly design. By rearranging the letters of the original, the design has been configured to give an erroneous view in a certain way to an observer – a warning sign that a irresponsible collection of data can be used in a dangerous way, especially for minorities.
True story, I’m sorry!
Oh you, United States of America… A country that became famous for the words, “I have a dream” and “yes we can” quickly downgraded with the words “grab them by the pussy”. An aggressive, overcooked wiener with an awful toupet, not only managed to go from asshole to millionaire, but trumped everybody’s fears and somehow became president of the United States. People don’t even bother to see if the news is fake or real anymore.
I, Johanna Daum, am pissed! It pisses me off that an orange bully gets to spread racism, sexism, and hate with no consequences and even gets applauded by some for it. This is a true story kids and I am so very sorry. The sad truth happened just as this photo, suddenly out of nowhere and unwelcomed, while grilling by the Rhein this photo was taken on my iPhone. Afterwards slightly cropped and aligned, photoshop can stay in bed..
Oh you United States of America how you make my ass crack itch when I think of you!
The poster represents the contradiction between the Mediterranean sea as a holiday destination for people living in well-being and the sea as a place of death for the refugees and the desperate who cross it in search of a better life. On the inflatable mat of a charming pink a white woman sunbathes with sunglasses indifferent to corpses on the seabed. In the same way the well-being of the first world floats on the exploitation of the poorest areas of the world.
Everyday the media provides information from all over the world. Whether plane crashes or breast augmentation, nothing remains unmentioned. Because of the large amount of information there is no more time to question the content. Did it really happen? Is the image real? Who wrote the article? How precise was the research? Is the statement true? We should not trust everything the media presents us.
Form Follows Function
People are reduced to superficialities, which have nothing to do with the natural course of events. The (western) beauty ideal detaches itself from the original function of the human organism. This example refers to men, but the principle obviously counts for women too.
Our ice melts as fast as never before, mainly triggered by our massive Co2 output. Global warming has some serious consequences, such as the rapid melting of glaciers.
If we do not start to act environmentally conscious soon, our postponed problems will become existential fears in the future.
Nestlé ist Branchenführer im riesigen Markt der Flaschenwasser-Hersteller. Entgegen ihrem Image als umweltbewusster und ressourcenschonender Trinkwasserversorger, kauft Nestlé Nutzungsrechte an Wasservorkommen für wenig Geld, schließt die lokale Bevölkerung vom direkten Bezug der Ressource aus ‒ nur um ihnen anschließend das selbe Wasser, verpackt in Plastikflaschen, wieder zu verkaufen.
Dies alles geschieht zudem ohne Rücksicht auf die Umwelt, Beispielsweise wenn das Unternehmen die Quellen zusätzlich anbohrt um mehr Wasser als auf dem natürlichen Wege zu gewinnen. Dabei trocknen ganzen Landstriche aus, Ernten bleiben aus, ganze Ökosysteme sterben und Quellen haben keine Zeit sich wieder zu regenerieren.
In dem Bewusstsein, dass wahrscheinlich bereits 2025 ca. 3 Milliarden Menschen unter Wassermangel leiden werden, treibt Nestlé die Privatisierung und auch Monopolisierung dieser wichtigen Ressource stetig voran. Leider wird über dieses Thema nur sehr wenig berichtet und gesprochen.
Für mein Plakat habe ich das Logo von Nestlé der Realität angepasst, und den Slogan von „Good Food, Good Life“ zu „Control Water, Control Life“ umgewandelt. Wer das Wasser kontrolliert, kontrolliert das Leben.
We did nothing
In recent months, the work of sea rescuers has been made incredibly difficult by the Corona pandemic. While inaction on one front ensured falling infection figures, missions on the Mediterranean came to a complete standstill at times. Many states even took restrictive measures against non-governmental teams of sea rescuers. Allowing people to die on the Mediterranean Sea in order to further the isolation of Europe and to fight political power struggles is intolerable and speaks against any humanity.
This poster is meant to visualize typical migraine pain.
Disturbances of the visual field (flickering before the eyes, flashes of light, blurred vision) are very common. Aside from this speech problems can occur. This is caused by disturbed signal transmission in the brain. Like an electric pulse a wave of disturbance is shot from a single across the cerebral cortex.
The letters M-I-G-R-A-I-N-E are reconstructed to create cuts, doublings and displacements. This is meant to recreate the feeling of migraine attack for anyone looking at the poster.

With my piece, I wanted to make a layout that could give a distant feeling of what it’s like to suffer from the disease. As a visual realization, especially in background with the contest for Mut zur Wut, I was looking for a way to bring the topic to an understandable point and with the help of which you can put yourself a little bit into the depressive state. My experiences with depression have led me to make a personal contribution to this topic. On the one hand, I wanted to tell those affected that they are not alone with their feelings and to give people who find it difficult to put themselves in this position a visual clue: Look, the world is hidden behind it (or a good poster;-), but it is not available to you. Be brave! Talk about it.
