New norms?/New Normal?
Poster, wheat paste
Normalization; social distancing; face masks; labor; everyday life; protest
These posters were widely distributed in central Athenian neighborhoods in May 2020.
Two composite posters designed in black and yellow criticize the normalization of face masks and social distancing. One shows an image of public transit passengers clad in masks and staring at their phone juxtaposed with the caption "New Normal? (in Greek:) No Thanks!" The other shows workers at the Chinese Dongfeng car manufacture eating their lunches while observing social distancing, with the caption "New Norms? (in Greek:) No Thanks!"
