The Contradictions of Globalisation


Project information

Year: 2017
Medium: Poster

This poster series lays out the different elements that play a part in the mobility from and towards Europe. The series takes the concept ‘The Contradictions of Globalisation’ by Zygmunt Bauman as a starting point. Nine posters each highlight how specific types of mobility within and towards Europe are perceived and treated differently — such as the transportation of goods, migration, and money. The communal political, social and cultural perspective on mobility causes these contradictions and the inequality that flows from them.
