Armando Milani has organised a wonderful collective exhibition in Rotonda della Besana in Milan, Italy, based on the word ‘ubuntu’ – a Southern African word that has its roots in humanist African philosophy – which embodies the concept of humanity and oneness. Ubuntu: I am because we are.
Ubuntu was often used by Nelson Mandela in his speeches and is widely understood as meaning respect, dialogue, tolerance and humanity. The collection of posters denounce oppression and present messages that suggest possible solutions in defense of human rights.
An itinerant exhibition and a possible book would include collected posters from more great international designers, from universities students and from school children, all asked to interpret the meaning of Ubuntu. Different ages, different cultures, one dream: Ubuntu from everyone to everyone.
The exhibition at the Rotonda della Besana in Milan will include posters from 50 designers (including AGI members such as Mauro Bubbico and Javier Jaén), 50 students and 50 children and will take place in the first week of October.
