Rewriting protest slogans 1968

12 collages, paper, A4, 2008

The collage is created based upon the archive of protest slogans from the “revolution” of 1968.  The collection of more than 100 slogans comes from demonstrations and protest movements from the entire world.  The idea of rewriting slogans in the present is inspired by the protests in Poland when it was dangerous to come into open confrontation with the regime.  In some cases, people wrote their messages on small pieces of paper, which they left in well frequented public spaces.   I asked my friends to mimic this subversive manner of distributing ideas and they rewrote slogans onto small pocket-sized pieces of paper.
