Hass erzeugt Hass

Ein Zitat von Paul Ernst scheint mir ganz passend für mein Plakatmotiv zu sein. “Hass erzeugt Hass, aber nie will der Hass sich nach dieser Wahrheit richten. Wie man selbst seinen Mitmenschen begegnet, so begegnen diese einem selbst. Das ist die zentrale Aussage des Plakats.

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.

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.

»WHAT YOU EAT«

Stomach and brain are strictly connected, and every sensorial experience is assimilated and transformed into emotions by those two essential parts of our organism. For this reason, every time we feed our body we also feed our soul.

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”!

In average, women are paid 22% less than men. The paper used for the poster is a German wage slip, the rest speaks for itself.

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.

What a wonderful world

This poster was designed to show the double moral in treating animals.
Kids are raised by their parents with books showing cute farm animals and happy people.
A wonderful world is presented to them, in which people and animals live in harmony.
On contrary the cute little pigs, sheep, and chicken are not given any second thought when they make it onto our bread for breakfast or into our dishes for lunch and dinner. We live in an illusion of a harmonic world created by ourselves, keeping our eyes shut for the harm that is done to animals.

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!

What do we need?

What we need is the Statue of Liberty or the same God like Chairman Mao! What do we really need: Freedom? Democracy? Or a common culture of the world? I combined the Chinese and Western symbols to express the embarrassment of a reality show that brings all the confusion of the cultural differences.

»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.
