Design and produce a related three-poster series that make a strong social, political or environmental statement and incites conversation.
This three-poster series examines the interaction between symbols and culture. Based on your upbringing you have your knowledge of what the Sauwastika represents. For most, it represents the Third Reich’s representation of the Swastika, the Nazi Hakenkreuz. Before Nazi symbolism, the symbol was used in Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and more.
For those who practice Hinduism, they see it as a symbol of prosperity and good luck. In Jainism, it is the seventh of 24 spiritual teachers, while in Buddhism it’s the footprint of the Buddha. In several Indo-European religions, it represents a lighting bolt and the thunder god. Regardless of your experience with this symbol, whenever it is apart of a conversation the topic is too tense for many.
