The poster we are featuring for this Poster Monday edition was created for an Annual Memorial Prime Minister Rabin. The assassination of Yitzhak Rabin took place on 4 November 1995 his assassin was an Israeli ultranationalist named Yigal Amir, radically opposed Rabin’s peace initiative. Lahav told us “Israel is in struggle of its mere existence as a democracy. Being a designer and a lefty political activist, I fight the occupation of Palestine, I fight violence and poverty, I fight gender issues, I support Pluralism and tolerance, and the issue of political assassination “falls” in to my fields of interest, combined with my profession as designer”.
