One morning, a friend called: ‘Anthon, have you seen? All your posters have been defaced. What an honour!’ And indeed, all the posters throughout the city had been covered in whitewash. It was 1993 and the poster was hanging there for the second time. Four years before, no one had objected and now everything was whitewashed. I thought those posters were so beautiful that I decided to do something with them. They inspired me to make the poster ‘Designography’ for the Holland Festival.
