For the first time, the Tolerance Poster show was exhibited on city buses. Beside the Dubrovnik Public City Transport buses, the exhibition opened at the historical complex Lazareti, a magnificent edifice built between 1627 and 1647.

Tolerance Book by Zayed University, Abu Dhabi

When I agreed with David Howarth and Kevin Badni to have The Tolerance Poster Show in Abu Dhabi at Zayed University they told me they were going to print a catalogue along with the show. After the opening of the show I asked them to send me a sample of the catalogue, expecting I would receive some sort of 8 page fold out pamphlet.

Instead of that, there arrived a 226 page book. What was really impressive is that all 111 posters I had during that time were printed in the book. Nothing was excluded or censored. Some of the images which contained frontal nudity would probably be censored by Facebook, but not in the book from Zayed University. Because of that I am very grateful to David and Kevin.
