The LackStreichKleber e.V. invited in cooperation with the Italien-Zentrum of the TU Dresden the Italian artist group Collettivo FX to realize two poster designs. Collettivo FX is known for political murals and actions in Italy. Dresden artists realize another poster design live on 13.2.
Simone Ferrarini from the group Collettivo FX visited Dresden to draw two posters on site.
The work “LA GUERRA É TRA / LA PACE É TRA” (Eng. - The war is between us / the peace is between us) shows two people putting on or taking off each other's helmets. It reminds us that togetherness is more important than arguments or content. Those who bring themselves to peace can have it as long as both sides have an interest in it.
“LA DISTANZE TRA IGNORARE E CAPIRE” (Eng. - The distance between ignoring and understanding) shows two people – a child and an adult who want to hug each other. However, there is a distance between them. The distance embodies an orange outline in the shape of a bomb. Weapons of war are still being manufactured and exported, especially in western countries. The West calls for peace and humanity, but at the same time exports war supplies in large quantities. Wars are repeatedly ignited in conflict regions and extremists are supplied with weapons.
On February 13, 2022, a picture was taken live as part of the poster campaign. Dresden artists have projected different motifs and combined them into one work. The action took place in the evening during and after the demonstrations through Dresden's downtown.
