Should art be exempt from political correctness?
Is political correctness just a form of social commentary?
"Smoke Moslem" is a fake ad for a cigarette brand once widely popular in 1920s Berlin. It wants to provoke and trigger a debate about a term much used today, a term that is often used today to dismiss ideas that make us uncomfortable.
The video was made for the "Anti-Ad" Festival in Hamburg.
