Swastika Kast

My name is Mark Salden from Belgium, and i’m a graduating student at the Academie for fine arts and design in Maastricht (the Netherlands)
this year i made a bookcase in the form of a swastika. i wanted to let the people know it’s NOT a symbol of hatred and nazism but love and peace. even if it is through provocation.The colors and design are inspired by the Dutch artist Piet Mondriaan. He was a member of Theosophy wich is a ‘modern’ version of hinduism and buddhism, a culture that today,stil uses the swastika. i got many positive, but also negative, reactions but i will stand my ground!
best regards,
Mark Salden
