Signalement Portraits on advertising pillars 2017

… is a series of graphic black and white portraits (drawings) of known and unknown personalities for advertising pillars and building site walls. (C F. Ch. H.)

About 70 graphic prints by artists*, philosophers* and despots of the present and the past have been placed on advertising pillars in the city of Frankfurt.

According to the motto: Where there is room for advertising images, it is of course art to place them.

The advertising space as an »icon board« for the distribution of news, a stop for political calls and announcements – it also serves as an exhibition space…

The selection, »Signalement« 2017, reflects the differentiation people make every day in the face of media-personalized product communication. An ambivalence of closeness, knowledge, ignorance, disinformation and idealisation…

The portrait cycle juxtaposes artists, politicians, despots, fascists and idols, known and unknown persons, such as Susan Sontag, Jimi Hendrix or Umberto Eco.
