Poster for the International triennial “4th Block” in association with Zero Corruption Conference in Kyiv, Ukraine. The project takes place as an international poster campaign to support the Zero Corruption Conference occurring in Kyiv and Chernobyl in April, 2020. The event aims to show the connection between corruption and money laundering and environmental, economic and regional security problems.
Posters showing x-ray with valuta from the most corrupted countries in the world – Venezuela, Somailia, South Sudan, North Korea, Syria and Lybia. All the countries on their way to democracy have to fight hard with corruption. Millions of their citizens stand for justice and democratic values. However, powerful political and business barons actively oppose this movement. These processes are especially evident within the former soviet state and in Ukraine particularly. The transition to democracy cannot happen in developing countries without profound changes in the rest of the world. Kleptocrats from poorer countries acquire assets, real estate, and invest in the business of developed countries. So, venal practices penetrates into financial system of the Western countries and infects the foundations of an open society. A vicious circle of dirty cash flows challenges the democracies of the entire planet.
