Mirko Ilić was inspired to launch the Tolerance Project following the “House of Tolerance” film festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2017. He asked 28 artists to create a poster about tolerance, the only requirement being that they write “tolerance” in their native language. After a successful 10-day show in Ljubljana, Mirko decided to tour the posters globally.
Now, with 111 poster shows since 2017, whenever Tolerance Project appears in a new city, local designers contribute to the show’s ever-expanding catalogue of artworks.
From 27 May 2021 to 26 June 2021 the BERLIN DESIGN WEEK will present the project for the first time in Berlin in the spacious foyer of the interior design house LIVING Berlin in Kantstrasse. With 70 posters by 70 designers from 39 countries, a part of the total of over 170 posters will be shown, some of them premiering in Berlin.
The exhibition was curated by Alexandra Klatt. On display are:
