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.
Women’s rights violation
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.
Women are still oppressed and disadvantaged by men in the most diverse areas of life. In the family, as well as in the public and the world of work, they are affected by social inequalities, which are caused, among other things, by traditional roles and gender prejudices. Women are underrepresented in leading positions and more often than men have a passive, reserved role in the background. They are taken less seriously and less perceived and encounter significant obstacles in the ascension within the hierarchy.
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”.
The message of my poster titled Find (or Lelet in Hungarian) is that if humanity will not change in its attitude towards the environment, then the legacy that left on Earth will be only the accummulated heaps of garbage. Waste that takes ages to break down and the overuse of plastics are becoming more and more important topics, in my opinion. My poster is meant to bring attention to this problem.
I would like environmental pollution to become our history and for humankind to strive to eradicate even its memory for the future generations.
The “Zeitgeist” poster was created in response to the news headlines from several online newspapers one day in October 2017. When scrolling through news portal sites, the discrepancy between positive and negative, important and unimportant news is incredibly large. On some days, this rapid change of moods causes discomfort. On other days, it triggers a state of indifference.
As a graphic designer the basis of my art-work is often world issues that bother me. Recession is one of these matters for which I designed my poster titled Capitalism. Colorful hats are metaphors of a Capitalist society which invisibly deceives its members and as a result, economic pressure is born. The culture industry produces the cultural commodity which is the sale of similar mass produced goods. This industry produces these products based on the human perception of life. The net result is anti-enlightenment or public manipulation to ensure and limit independent thought, thinking, and judgment. All this is achieved by the culture industry while making the masses believe that this is new and exactly what they’re looking for. The result forces the public to conform to the system and capitalism at large and prevents critical thinking.
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.
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.
The Swiss popular initiative “Against mass immigration”, launched by the national conservative swiss peoples party, was accepted by a majority of the electorate (50,3%). It aims to limit immigration through quotas. This not only causes a loss of image, but threatens the bilateral treaties between the European Union and Switzerland. It’s a shame.
The Scream H2O
The theme of the poster is water as the most important natural resource and the basis for all life. It is a wake-up call about pollution and abuse in the use and consumption of this natural resource. If we do not take care of the water and continue the current trend this natural resource will have been consumed or will be so polluted that it will become practically useless. It is a scream for help.
