* A witty allusion of Robert Indiana’s LOVE icon. More than two decades ago in 1990 trams in Amsterdam were covered with this very early AIDS silkscreen poster of General Idea. Later on the artists group had other versions produced in larger editions. The ‘Amsterdam Tram Project’ became quite controversial, i.e. conductors refused to drive their trams covered with the colourful and marked stickers afraid of giving their support to or at least being compromised and associated with homosexuality. Very rare.
