Protect the EU.
Inspired by Wolfgang Tillmans’ anti-Brexit campaign, Jop van Bennekom, the designer/art director and founder of Fantastic Man magazine, has adapted Tillmans' posters for the upcoming Dutch elections on March 15. With the support of partner organizations including Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam, De Balie, Het Nieuwe Instituut, Witte de With Centre for Contemporary Art and Cookies, the campaign's focus is the protection of the EU against the current wildfire of political negativity.
This is the time for action. Vote for whatever party, but don’t vote down the EU. Now is the time to raise awareness and to protect what has protected us, and our values, for so long. The campaign is a call to work together, to adapt the posters, to spread them and to talk with people of opposite beliefs.

With an increasing anti-European sentiment it becomes ever so more important to speak out and reinstate the position we believe in. Enraged nationalism is slowly becoming normalised in today’s political discourse by far-right politicians. It spews hate and anxiety.
Cooperation not confrontation.
