18 Illustrations That Leave A Mark, Ideal For Reflecting On The Problems And Contradictions Of Our Society.

Sometimes we don’t even realize it, but society, with its rhythms, customs, unwritten rules, manages to swallow us up as if it were a “higher” organism. And in doing so, it leads to hundreds and hundreds of contradictions, from the smallest to the most macroscopic, which unfortunately often seem difficult to overcome.

Overwhelming technology, gender inequality, an increasingly complex and undemocratic world of work, an increasingly threatened environment, and less and less time to do anything. These are just a few of the concepts in which we can all recognize the societies in which we live. This is why we have decided to show you 18 striking, representative, and very current illustrations which, without words, have succeeded in expressing all these concepts by providing us with interesting food for thought.
