University warns against ‘illegal use of portraits’ in Hong Kong protest exhibition poster

by admin

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has warned against an “illegal use of portraits” in the promotional materials for an exhibition organised by student unions to mark a year since the campus turned into a battleground between police and pro-democracy protesters last November.

In a statement issued on Wednesday night, CUHK raised concerns over the use of portraits in the promotional materials for the upcoming show on November 11 to 18. The CUHK Students’ Union said the display would feature photos and a timeline linked to the “five-day siege” of the university, as well as testimony from the students arrested.

The poster for the exhibition depicts black-clad protester wearing goggles and a respirator, with other demonstrators waving protest banners in the background amid clouds of white smoke. The poster also included an image of tear gas canisters and photos of Joseph Sung and Rocky Tuan – the former and current vice-chancellors of CUHK.
