Exhibition Annotation:
By transforming the Olympic rings into the corporate logos of Mercedes, Coca-Cola, Adidas, McDonald's, and BMW, this 1988 poster focuses on the increasing commercialism of the Games through corporate sponsorship. The words ‘We call upon the youth of the world’, normally used as an invitation to the next Olympiad, are subverted to become a comment on consumerism.
