"Advertising does not only incite to consume. It also provides information and awareness. In all its diversity and creativity, it knows how to assist great causes by enabling the public to understand the pressing necessity of supporting them. This is exactly what this fascinating exhibition demonstrates. Here, the intelligence of the advertising community speaks to every single heart."
