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.

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”!

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.

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.

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.

All a lie

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.

Sea Holiday

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.

Fair play – FUCK OFF

Die Idee für mein Plakat entstand während der Präsidentschaftskandidatur Sepp Blatters für eine vierte Amtszeit als FIFA-Präsident.

Die FIFA stellt sich gerne als völkerverbindender, die Kulturen einender, Global Player dar. Was hinter verschlossenen Türen geschieht, hat allerdings nichts mit einem weltoffenen Unternehmen zu tun. Skurrile Entscheidungen werden von einem erlesenen Kreis von Funktionären getroffen: Die WM-Vergabe an Katar oder der Bau riesiger Stadien ohne nachhaltigen Nutzen für die Bevölkerung Südafrikas sind Beispiele dafür. Hier scheint es nur um das schnelle Geschäft und um maximalen Profit zu gehen. Die Korruptionsvorwürfe wollen nicht verstummen. Doch Kritik wird nicht geduldet, das System um jeden Preis erhalten.

Die Idee des globalen FAIR PLAY wird zum leeren Marketingversprechen. FUCK OFF ist meine Antwort darauf. Sie steht gleichzeitig für die Haltung der FIFA ihrem eigenem Claim gegenüber: Blatter hat ihn zu einer zynischen Worthülse degradiert.

Deadly waves

My poster shows a whale being symbolically cut into pieces by sound waves.
The noise exposure under water is constantly increasing; cargo ships, navy sonar systems, the installation of offshore wind parks, ships looking for oil and gas, altogether form an immensely, continuous noise.  Whales and other water creatures are losing their orientation, as they are communicating by ultrasound and their orientation is disturbed.
Hence they are driven away from reproduction and nutrition places, lose their group, some get deaf. Whole schools of whales stranded after seismic examinations and sonar experiments, used in order to find oil. The animals concerned die in a torturous way, and are finally found with internal bleedings and damaged acoustic organs at our beaches.
They tried, without any orientation, to flee from the acoustic noise surrounding them.

Bad Poster

A poster based on a motif taken from the classic pop album cover – Michael Jackson’s Bad. I was inspired by characteristic pose, the title of the record and the singer’s penetrating look. When I thought about the series of Bad Posters, it was the first, completely natural idea that came to my mind. Punk, anarchist use and transformation of an existing theme, taken from pop culture. I simplify motif, leave only black shape and mysterious look. I tried to create mysterious, slightly grotesque, dark image with high power, simplicity and use appearance of a cult and controversial vocalist.

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.
