Tolerance Poster Show in Timișoara, Romania

I am very proud to announce that we just had the 100th show of Tolerance Poster Show. 

The show opened in Timișoara, on November 16th as part of the celebration for the International Day of Tolerance. This show was made possible by the relentless effort by Ovidiu Hrin in coordination with TypopassageTM, to whom we are very grateful.
 


After the Neo-Nazi “attacks” on the Tolerance Poster Show in Zagreb, Croatia, it happened again.

In response to the Tolerance Poster Show in Timisoara, Romania, members of the Orthodox Nationalist Populist party complained via social media, that the work was "corrupting our values”.

In particular, two posters were singled out, the works of Israeli artist David Tartakover and Romanian designer Benedek Levente. A day later, these two posters “went missing” from the exhibition. The next day, US designer Jennifer Morla's poster also “went missing”. The pattern and motive are more than obvious. The organizers of the show responded to it immediately, and the stolen posters are reprinted and replaced.

Here are some of the local media reactions:

2nd Tolerance Posters Show in Zagreb, Croatia

On November 16th, the International Day of Tolerance , the Tolerance Poster Show was displayed in the center of Zagreb on the fence of the Botanical Garden . Here is a link to a short video of the show . Unfortunately only 24 hours later, the show was "attacked" by Neo-Nazis graffitis. On the posters, they wrote "NDH", which is the abbreviation for Nezavisna Država Hrvatska (Independent State of Croatia) a Second World War puppet state of Nazi Germany. On others, they graffitied the letter "U" which is the symbol for Ustaša the Second World War Croatian fascist organization. And they even wrote "Smrt Srbozločincima" (Death to the Serbian criminals). Luckily, the organizers of the show figured out how to remove this hate speech and the symbols. Outrage over this vandalism, was expressed through all news media in Croatia. Here , here , here , and here are some of the local media reactions. You can see the video of the show here . This show
