War and Peace

War and Peace is a theatre play in which director Tomaž Pandur deals with the relation and influence of war to peace and vice versa. The poster closely follows that concept. Half of the red cross was printed and the full cross was achieved by folding freshly printed paper. By doing so, peace literally affects war and each poster is also unique, because there are no two prints alike.
