"ART AS A MASS POLITICAL WEAPON"
THE POSTER COLLECTIVE 1972-82
Amid the tensions of the cold war era in the 1970's, a group of young people responded to the violent colonial wars abroad and repression at home by working together to create hand-printed oppositional posters used in numerous campaigns and educational contexts. The collective members created these posters on a voluntary basis, whilst squatting in various buildings until this was no longer possible. A book has now been designed to document the posters and tell the story of our attempt to create a critical viewpoint of both past events and those of the day.
