PROHIBITIONS

In the lounge of Schoeneberg Airport there is an advert for Die Welt Kompakt. In the first panel, the advert shows one person reading a large broadsheet newspaper, with the other travelers near him craning their necks to read it over his shoulder. This panel has a large red cross over it. In the second panel, the advert shows a row of people, all happily reading compact newspapers. This panel has a large green tick. To share a newspaper with others, and so engage in a collective act of reading, would seem now to be forbidden. What is strange is that Die Welt Kompakt is free.
