Wolfgang Tillmans (DE)
“Dear friends, […] we have reached a critical moment that could prove to be a turning point for Europe as we know it.
turning point for Europe as we know it. […] Brexit could mean the end of the EU. It is an imperfect institution, but on the whole it stands for a democratic worldview, for human rights and fosters cooperation.”
With these words, German artist and photographer Wolgang Tillmans, winner of the Turner Prize, decided to take the field in May 2016 with an anti-Brexit advertising campaign.
Hundreds of posters, with slogans capable of attracting the attention of young people in particular, invaded the streets of the UK in an attempt to stem the rejection of Europe. Today, in the light of the facts, Tillmans is not backing down and is continuing the project in a Pro-EU version.
