Selected poster for Graphic Matters Festival, Breda (NL) which had for thematique this year, Information Superpower.

We looked at the unbalanced relationship between Swedish tourists coming en masse every winter and Thaï tourists forced to give as much as 14 documents to be allowed in Sweden. Tourist Visa, travel bans or exemption of visas, with this example, we aim to ask, who is allowed to travel freely and based on what?

Mark

In 2018, 38.27 million people visited Thailand. The country has facilitated its administration, making EU passports owners exempt of Visas for a journey up to 30 days, 2% of the population of Sweden, one in every fifty, is going to Thailand every year. With winter arriving, streets and subways are filled with advertisement selling idyllic vacations to the white beaches of Thailand. What about Thai citizens visiting Sweden? In this work we are looking at the unbalanced relationship between Swedish tourists coming en masse every winter and Thai tourists forced to give as much as 14 documents to be allowed in Sweden. Tourist Visa, travel bans or exemption of visas, with this example, we aim to ask, who is allowed to travel freely and based on what?


This poster was made for the Graphic Matters Festivalan international biennial festival about graphic design and its impacts in our daily lives. The festival based in Breda(NL) have asked designers to create posters on the topic of Information Superpower! Our poster was selected alongside 49 others and exhibited during the festival.
