Something in the eye

Students at the class of Prof. Klaus Hesse at the Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach from China, Korea, South Africa, Brazil and Europe have tackled pressing contemporary political and social issues in response to Wilhelm Zimmermann's exhibition at the Institut für Stadtgeschichte Frankfurt am Main. Pro and Contra. An in-between does not exist for students at the HfG. On show are posters that take a stand against concerns such as political pressure, maritime pollution, fine dust alerts in cities, surveillance of the internet, genetically engineered food and violence against refugees or dissidents. Also on show are posters for a free press, for labour laws, for the rights of refugees and the right of everyone to an education. The show presents many attacks on our way of perceiving and thinking. Many of the works on view won international awards.
