The first Monday Poster of April its titled Coercion, War is a Violation and was designed by Emese Deschmann. She was born in Buapest (Hungary) to an art patronizing family, after spending a year at the Merz Academy (Hochschule Für Gestaltung, Kunst und Medien) in Stuttgart, then she graduated from the Faculty of Arts of the University of Pécs with a degree in painting (2000). Emese have gained most of her knowledge from the masters, Sándor Pinczehelyi and Ferenc Lantos. After working in the field of advertising graphics and graphic design work for more than 10 years – therefore gaining a lot of professional and human experience – she have found her way back to artistic poster design and illustration.
“The war next to us sparked the idea, but what I wanted to say is a little more general. Coercion, war is a violation of life itself. Whichever way it ends up, whatever it results in – a collective trauma is inevitable. Whatever the purpose of war is – an exercise of power, financial or territorial increment, – violence is the humiliation of life” tell us Emese.
