Apparently there is an election looming in Austria. I deduced this from the hundreds of political campaign posters plastered all over the small city where I work as a part-time instructor on the weekends. The posters and billboards are everywhere - on lampposts, fences, buildings - and they compete for space with the regular commercial posters I usually see on my way to work: posters promoting concerts and sales and children's activities and car exhibitions and so on. This week a traveling circus began to advertise itself in the city, and it placed its posters in the same spaces the political posters occupy, which has created what I would classify as a most fitting series of juxtapositions, as can be seen in the photograph below.
