On the satirical replacement posters, the non-governmental organization shows dystopian future versions of German cities to draw attention to the consequences of the climate crisis.
As a protest against the IAA Mobility trade fair currently taking place in Munich, Attac has put up critical pastiches of car advertising in the city. During the night, activists exchanged posters at bus stops and tram shelters for their satirical works.
Under the heading “The freedom you mean”, the motifs show a car in front of three different backgrounds: Berlin affected by forest fires, Hamburg sunken in the sea and Munich swallowed up by the desert.
Attac had planned to exchange up to 70 posters to protest against the climate impact of the auto industry and road traffic. It was initially unclear how many were ultimately attached. The organizers had emphasized in advance that the original posters should not be damaged and should remain on site.
The IAA Mobility runs until Sunday in Munich, and various groups are protesting against the trade fair.
