In 2013 parts of Germany were hit hard by massive flooding. Flood damage was estimated at some 8 billion euros. Our hometown was left unharmed. We didn’t do anything better than our northern or eastern neighbours. We were simply lucky. So we invented this relief project to share our privileged situation. We made a series of 200 copies by hand.
Our Poster was accepted as beneficence by the “House of History” in Bonn, Germany and will be considered as contemporary document for future exhibitions. Even Federal President Joachim Gauck accepted the beneficence.
Each poster was unique and handmade. We laid the paper into dirty flood water and printed afterward a neon screen print on it. We sold each copy for 50 Euros. All donations went directly to charities.
