No Description!

This poster is about freedom of speech.
It is the inalienable right of every human being who is denied of his in some countries.
The dove with beak tied is the metaphor of man under pressure that he could not express his opinions freely.

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.

Inequality

The poster reflects the inequality between social classes. In this dog-eat-dog world, whoever is wealthier and has a bigger influence reigns over those who are inferior, and the “superiors” can enforce their rights more easily against the others, thus keeping them suppressed.

A Trap into Nature

The plot of the poster is the pollution, more specifically, the car exhaust. The unique ambiguity of the (german) title leaves no doubt who the « bad guy » is.

Technopolymarine Life

In 2050, 3x more plastic could swim in the sea than fish. There are already 6x more plastic in the water than plankton in many parts of the sea and many seabirds and marine mammals die from contact with plastic waste. A single plastic bottle takes 450 years to decompose in the sea, but it never dissolves completely, but splits only into small, barely visible plastic particles.

We need to rethink how we treat our environment. People should be made aware of this issue because it affects each of us!

Straightening the circle

The symbol of the cycle is omnipresent on todays products and packagings. To the consumer this can be misleading, constantly suggesting the waste will be reused. This way of recycling often is just a disposal via detours. Wrongly disposed or problematic materials are burnt or exported, statistically counting as recycled. While the total amount of waste produced is going up, the real challenge of reducing waste is neglected.

Standby Fukushima

Die Katastrophe für Mensch und Natur in Japan ist nur wenige Monate alt, aber medial weitestgehend schon wieder vergessen. Das Plakat soll uns das Schicksal und die noch ungeklärten folgen für Mensch und Natur wieder ins gedächtniss rufen. Zugleich weißt das Plakat auch darauf hin, das die atomare Katastrophe in fukushima nicht behoben quasi nicht “abgeschaltet” ist.

Identity

This poster was made to talk about the absence of opinion and judgment of the people. The crisis of identity when a person just repeats and follows directions without a real personal point of view. We can see this in current social and political movements, which people blindly follow because this is the “correct form” but don’t really question anything.

Jobs for migrants

Making pictograms visible in urban areas of feelings and thoughts of those who left their home countries and live in a new country is the aim of migrantas. Key elements and similarities between the experiences of migration are emerging after a careful analysis of drawings from various workshops. The central motifs are graphically and artistically implemented by migrantas in pictograms – a visual, understandable language for all.

I can´t see you anymore

Cities all over the world are becoming more and more invisible. They become invisible because of the smog we create to reach ever higher goals. But the smog destroys the basis of living and everything gets ugly and we grow ill – until we can’t see each other anymore.

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.

Rückgrat

Unsere Arbeit lässt sich schnell beschreiben: Dinge, die wir scheiße finden. Und die mussten einfach mal gesagt werden.
Da Wut in der Regel subjektiv ist haben wir Wörter aus unserem Sprachgebrauch, hauptsächlich Eigenkreationen, verwendet. Die verschobene Optik und die Farbigkeit unterstützen diesen Ansatz und machen agressiv/unruhig, wenn man das Plakat länger ansieht.

Obese Germany

67% of men and 53% of women in Germany are overweight (RKI). Both an unhealthy diet and lack of exercise can be actively changed! The number of clinically obese patients has doubled over the course of five years. Where is this trend heading? McDonalds and the like are not changing course: they still use glossy advertising, sweepstakes and toys for the little ones, to market their product. Aside from toys you might also get diabetes, cancer and fatty liver, for no extra charge!

Moderate Rebels

This quick sketch (originally drawn on a sticky note) is an ironical approach to clarify the paradox and misleading term “moderate rebels“. A disguised person sits in front of a TV. Holding a rifle in one hand and a TV remote in the other one. This guy does not seem to be in the mood for a rebellion. His dullness is emphasized by the words „Heute kein Bock!“ (engl. “Not Today!“).

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.

Rape

Daily, throughout the whole world, not only in India, there are crime scenes of brutal rapes.
My work calls for the observer to reflect, but still gives them the freedom to imagine the extent of the serious injuries of a rape victim.
At the same time the ever increasing red tones – the strongest being the word “rape” visualizes the damage which is irreparable.

Clean-Cut Case Racism

Complexions are just colour fields, why would you get irritated by them? Why would you even segregate them or be hostile to them? Who decides from which colour field someone belongs to the good ones or the bad ones?
It is necessary to stop the segregation and bring those colours back together.
