Tolerance Posters


Tolerance Posters in Salt Lake City, Utah
by Mirko Ilic

On January 23rd the Tolerance Poster Show was open in Salt Lake City, Utah.

It happened simultaneously in a few different locations and there is more to come. The show appeared on the streets and appeared in a local park that currently is under construction.
Salt Lake County Art and Culture Center is debuting posters and showcasing them on a screen at Salt Lake Film Society, in the main theater. This theater will also be hosting The Sundance Film Festival, where all visitors will have a chance to see Tolerance posters. At the same time the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center were displaying the posters in their lobby.

The show is also featured in Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA) ACME Lab. Due to limited space not all posters were possible to be displayed in the gallery. But all posters were displayed on computer screens.

Few posters are also displayed in The Salt Lake City Public Library as well as other libraries around the city. Here all posters are also projected on the walls of the library.
Some posters were even glued onto a truck traveling around the city where people could silk screen posters by Josh Scheuerman, a Utah based artist and activist. This was organized by The Blocks, Salt Lake's Cultural Core.

All this made possible in the first place by the relentless efforts of Dallas Graham from The Red Fred Project.

Post-Auschwitz


Crónica Post-industrial
(Cracovia, diciembre de 2018)

Para el buen gobierno de nuestros desvaríos, haremos arrancar la presunta era post-industrial en 1945 y diremos que en ella se llevan a sus últimas –o penúltimas– consecuencias rasgos o tendencias propias de la era industrial, que ahora se exacerbarán. MASA POR ACELERACIÓN como fórmula magistral… Dos hechos significativos suponen la transición de la era industrial a la post-industrial: Auschwitz e Hiroshima. El nazismo, régimen de amalgama y maníaco, renovará el culto a lo irracional –la masa sometida a métodos visionarios de propaganda o la querencia de los capirotes nazis por la «esotería»–, culto que pervertirá definitivamente lo racional –el hombre como cobaya o la aplicación al ser humano de criterios reservados a la fabricación, la producción, reduciéndolo a materia prima sometida a una explotación aberrante. Auschwitz como fábrica racionalizada de muerte. La crueldad como mercancía vedette.

Miguel Ibáñez (2000). Pop Control. Crónicas post-industriales. Ediciones Glénat, Barcelona, pag 11.

Imágenes tomadas durante las navidades de 2018 en las calles de Cracovia, en el MOCAK (detalles de las obras de Boris Lurie, Krzysztof M. Bednarski, Muntean/Rosenblum y Mocak Collection), la Cricoteka (detalles de las exposiciones de Maria Jarema Jaremianka y Tadeusz Kantor) y en Auschwitz.
