Illustrated in this poster is the comedy “The Birds” by Aristophanes, in which Pisthetaerus, hopelessly in debt, leaves his hometown of Athens and shortly afterwards becomes the ruler of the universe. Together with the birds, he builds a city, Cloudcuckooland, in the space between heaven and earth. From this strategically outstanding location, he can control and rule over the gods as well as the people. The design concept of the poster was to visualise the conjoining of human and bird.
