Europe is facing the biggest refugee crisis since World War II. Thousands of people are forced to leave their homes and look for safety in foreign countries. Ideas and values crucial to the European Union and international agreements, such as the Geneva Convention and the Lisbon Treaty, oblige all EU member states to provide refugees with asylum and assistance. Nevertheless, many politicians voice their objection towards those moral and legal obligations. Political divisions surface also in European Union’s societies. Hate speech is rampant, as is ever so alive xenophobia and islamophobia. Let’s not be indifferent to spreading fear and ignorance that often leads to aggression and violence. Let’s take our stand using transnational language of fine arts. A poster is a strong means of stating the idea – let’s use it!
