Atlas der Vorurteile (German Edition)
Atlas of Prejudice (English Edition)
Very very very funny....splendid...fantastic !!!
Can"t wait a special south east asia or ASEAN countries map...especially my beloved Indonesia (Indonesia...unity in diversity...)
@panos_ad Γιατί εμείς τους δώσαμε πολιτισμό και ούτε ένα ευχαριστώ και η μισή Ευρώπη είναι δικιά μας αλλά μας την έχουνε κλέψει!!!
Oh, and please don't use that "numa-numa" (in Romanian it means "only-only"), it has no connection with absolutely nothing between romanian borders. "manelist (gypsy music lover) government" works better.
Yea, that would be funny. Three versions - one according to the gypsies living in Romania, one according to the romanian-gipsies genetic mix that you see in the newspapers stealing and killing in our own government and across Europe, and one according to the true romanians, those that invented the electricity (Tesla), the jet engine (henry coanda), the insuline, the antirabic vaccine, the rocket theory (herman oberth) and so on. That might be interesting. Also - where's microsoft headquarters? the second language spoken there is romanian.
@skaarj I don't know about true Romanians but you sound like a racist to me. While born in Sibiu, Hermann Oberth was German and Tesla was Serbian. But most of all, this is not a project which sings praises to any nation, so why should I take all those things into account, while all other maps make fun of everybody else? It wouldn't be very fair,would it?
@alphadesigner Well Nikola Tesla was born in Smiljan, Austrian Empire which is Croatia today to Serbian parents.
But anyways... dude or chick whatever you are, you are doing a good job on these maps! Keep it up!
I sincerely doubt that many of these were made by people from the respective countries.... for countries like Italy, Switzerland and Germany, many of the cited sterotypes seem more like a pop-culture mediated image of what OTHERS think THEY think than the real native jokes or bigotry.
The Mapping Stereotypes project is not an exercise in statistics, if that's what you meant. It's a satirical map project. You can find out more about critical response, including the countries you mentioned, here: http://alphadesigner.com/press/
Satire is humor that plays on reality. Most of these maps are far from reality. They don't in any way represent the misconceptions of the given country about the outside world. If anything, these maps reflect their creator's misconceptions about other countries' misconceptions.
@booooo Here you go, spank her good!
@skyeee Oh, it wouldn't be a bad idea for you to stop assuming I am an American, it will clear a lot of your own misconceptions. :)
@skyeee If my work didn't target real issues or misinterpreted them in the way you suggest, Stern magazine in Germany wouldn't feature it as Satire of the Year and I wouldn't have a book in German coming next month. Corriere della Sera in Italy wouldn't have featured them on its front page either.
I'd love to see your take on Canada's view on the rest of the world (or just parts of it.) Great stuff, by the way.
i belive it wold be funny to see how the portuguese see europe also, i hope you can make that happen
I loved the maps could u make an Europe acc. to Hungary, Japan, China map too pls? The Israel about Europe and about the world would be interesting too. I know China and Japan are far away but the are lots of Chinese people around the world selling cheap stuff so they probably have their opinion.
poor Italy! I'm italian, and I hate that my country is know for Berlusconi... He's very stupid and bastard
very funny project
but one map made for the Guardian : Arab winter, has this 'Gadafi sperm bank'; '("Because most of his family ran away to Algeria," Tsvetkov says, "so it's like a sperm bank for the preservation of his legacy") i believe thats one of the rare instances(Belusconi being another) where a persons name is attached to a map of stereotypes.
Thats be after the NATO forces came to the aid of the LIFG terrorists and bombed the country rentlessly...Most of the Gadafi remained in Libya, and were killed there or are still there. Aisha did leave, but that was for her protection. Gadafi himself never left.
A map of my own personal stereotypes would look like this:
The Netherlands, Scandinavia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland: ARYAN DOUCHEBAGS;
Croatia, Slovenia: WANNABE ARYAN DOUCHEBAGS
British Isles: DRINKING BUDDIES
Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Russia, Serbia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Baltic states, Russia: MORE DRINKING BUDDIES
Romania: NUMA NUMA
Northern Italy: HACKENSACK
Southern Italy, Scily: BAY RIDGE
Turkey: GOOD LUCK
I'd name my own country of origin, but it should already be obvious.
@iiiii Lol i'm 1.81-2. Does that make me a largish or largish midget or a mini sasquach hahah
i think under 1.70 is midget-ish and over 1.90 is too gigantic unless you're a professional sportsman haha
and around 1.80 is average, over 1.83-4 is tall under 1,73-4 is quite short.
From a fashion point of view the perfect man's height is between 1,85 and 1,88 - that's what most of the male-models' height :)
@iiiii males taller than 1.7 are officially sasquatch neanderthals in my opinion
