About the Project
Marking the six month anniversary of September 11th, a poster designed by artist Hans Haacke appeared on scaffolding and media walls throughout New York City. The poster itself was blank and white, consisting only of die-cut silhouettes of the World Trade Center towers.
When the poster was mounted or plastered on a wall, the underlying posters appeared through the die-cut silhouettes, effectively reminding the pubic that September 11th created a ubiquitous filter through which everyday realities have become measured or seen.
