United colors of iranian women

Iranian women are forced to wear veil which should be cover the hair and body. When a person doesn’t have minimum of liberty to choose her dress, how could she be a dynamic person?This person with a such a black background couldn’t be effective in the social,economical,political,arenas of her life.But our Iranian women don’t desist from the struggle-our coloured revolution fight without violence.

»Modus Operandi«

The capitalistic exploitation logic steers us increasingly destructive to the abyss of self-destruction. Modern human beings remain in an attitude of passive endurance and seemingly comfortable self-deception, when the alternative would be a necessary revolution. We remain calm as Hindu cows and operate business as usual.

Migraine

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.

Ego

Rugged individualism is a common disease of our time. It is bound with selfishness and has many negative consequences at all levels. Excessive self-adoration leads to ignoring each other; each individual sees its own interests without consideration of the common good, while we live in a world, in which we are increasingly interdependent on each other.
To illustrate this idea, I chose to use an iconic image of pure beauty and transformed it thoroughly in order to create something monstrous. The belly button – is the center of the individual and moving it to the center of the Venuses face expresses this imbalance called “belly button gazing”.

Stop Female Genital Mutilation

The topic of my poster “Stop Female Genital Mutilation” is a much discussed theme in the human rights debate, nevertheless, most people do not know what exactly happens during the procedure and how cruel it actually is. This is what I tried to communicate with my motive, while displaying the shape of the female sex the poster gives brutal information in short and direct sentences. The font I used is called “Thorn” and has been designed by Hubert Jocham and is just the right font to emphasize the brutality of the procedure. FGM is, although it is a serious violation of the human rights, carried out in many regions, among them western countries (up to 500000 girls and women living in the European Union are affected or threatened by FGM). Just recently illegal procedures in South Africa (which is not even on the list of countries where FGM is practiced) have been discovered. After the terrible circumcision, these girls are branded with a mark on their thighs as evidence of having attended the procedure. We all need to raise awareness, Stop FGM Now!

To some of the leaders of the world the idea of war is the same as the music notes which they play whenever they want without considering the consequences, and as a result, countless civilians and soldiers die without a reasonable cause!

Buck the system!

Posters are made to transport certain information. Nowadays the free or politically motivated posters are decreasing. What we are left with are rejoicing advertisements and cheap ampaign slogans. My poster deals with this subject matter. Ambiguously arranged typography prompts to leave the everyday comfort zone behind and begin to challenge the information and pictures we are fed.

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.

Gesichtsbuch

Facebook wird immer mehr zu einem festen Bestandteil alltäglicher Kommunikation, doch wird dieses soziale Netzwerk oft eher unreflektiert genutzt. Neben anderen negativen Aspekten fiel mir vor allem die dortige Definition und der Umgang mit dem Wort »friend«, also »Freund« auf. Funktioniert Facebook nicht unter anderem, wie der Name schon sagt, als »Gesicht(sammel)buch«? Wie viele Menschen in seiner Freundesliste kennt man wirklich?

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?

A seemingly idyllic landscape painting turns out to be a destructive nuclear weapon test by the youngest dictator in the world. The North Koreans are constantly launching new nuclear and missile tests. One wonders when the nuclear arms race will finally come to an end.

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.

Swarm of Drones

In a not too distant future everybody might be a drone’s target. With countless cameras and even weapons on board a drone might be worse than any insect you´ve ever felt disturbed by.
Once they decide to attack you it will most likely be too late for a court hearing. So watch out for this dangerous man-made species as there won’t be much we can do once they´ve grown.

Violence returns

Violence generates violence, how do we stop this circulation of aggression? A man beats his wife, the son is watching, the boy grows up and now he is beating his own wife, his child is watching…the circle will repeat. We need to stop this creation of violence. It circulates shamelessly in every part of our lives. It is everywhere: in our home, school, university, workplace, on the streets, in media, movies and we cannot find a perfect solution to reduce violent crime – because the solution doesn‘t exist.

I’m watching you

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”!
