Election posters for Cardinal Turkson in Rome

The Italian election campaign is not known for its sophisticated aesthetic. But that obviously does not put off the art group Zero Zero Kappa Kappa. With a variety of posters, they brought the Romans on Friday near matters that usually take place strictly shielded from the public behind closed doors: The election campaign for the Papacy in the Vatican .

The posters put up show Prelate Peter Turkson from Ghana, who is regarded as a promising candidate. "When you vote in the conclave Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson" is shown on the posters. Under a photo of Turkson, there is, in the style of the Italian election campaign, a papal symbol marked with an election cross. Zero Zero Kappa Kappa is known for actions of this kind. The Romans remember well the traffic signs with a warning against tear gas.

The conclave to elect a new head of the Catholic Church comes after the resignation of Benedict XVI from the Papacy altogether. Turkson is the president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace at the Vatican. He is considered a conservative church leaders.
