Overview

Description

We decided to criticize this censorship by using the censorship itself. We shot thousands of censored wall photographs in 15 neighborhoods of Istanbul. And we created the “Typography of Censorship” from them. Our message is clear: "Words beat censorship!”

Execution

We made posters and newspaper ads with using this new typography. And we hung these posters to the censored walls. Also we made a generator on our web site and people made their own posters and shared on social media.

Outcome

Our project received wide coverage in the media and subjected to corner posts.
