this is a series that I first initiated in 2000, after the reaction of the Belgian foreign minister to the election of the right wing politiician Haider into the Austrian government: He pronounced publicly: Don't ski in Austria. (I agree with opposing Haider, but I thought that this kind of opposition was highly problematic)

George W. Bush's administration did a similar propaganda against France (and others) opposing the Iraq war: the White House restaurant discontinued serving French wine and so-called French Fries where renamed: Freedom fries.

The first series of graphite pencil drawings ( 70 x 100 cm ) included the sentences: Say NO to all kind of right wing politics.

For a second series of "Don't .... series," this sentence is not anymore necessary. There are different sentences added and the size is smaller: 9 x 12 inch; 22.9 x 30.5 cm. I draw them by myself with ball pens. I intend to make them in several colors: So far, a blue one is shown in Belgium and a black version is shown in Bremen. Other color sentences are not drawn yet (they mightnever be done.. as so many planed things in my life)

THE TITLE of all these drawings is identical with th text of the drawings (color and size need to be specified)
