We Come in Peace Rašić+Vrabec
The poster is inspired by a speech of a famous Indian chief Seattle that was allegedly held in the year 1854. The speech was addressed to the US president in response to an offer to buy Native American land for the purpose of building a railroad.
This poster draws a parallel between the current migration to Europe and the invasion of America in the past. Back then, the “superior” Europeans were taking land from the natives in various ways, and today we have the opposite situation when the “inferior” people come to an “advanced” and “socially aware” Europe in search of better living conditions.
