Dalida Karić - Hadžiahmetović / Challenges of modern living
…what better known, more common, or supposedly more trivial the theme of poster is, Dalida Karić-Hadžiahmetović inversely gets inspired for an extremely effective interpretation, as a kind of artistic challenge! Level of metaphorical transfer and interference of message of text and images varies from poster to poster, but still in front of us stands extremely imaginative, witty, meaningful and at the same time an easy solution. Subtle and delicately, through visual language, disclosing gender inequality, eradication of local cultural heritage, danger of nuclear waist and other ecological problems, Dalida Karić-Hadžiahmetović gives a strong critique of today’s modern world which is, behind the mask of humanity, interested only in making profit.
