Original screenprinted poster, 1968. Laid on linen for museum conservation.

From a time of civil unrest in France that started in March 1968 with student protests at the University of Paris against class discrimination and the policy of university funding, and turned into larger protests against capitalism, consumerism, and out-of-touch institutions. Spreading to factory workers and trade-unions it eventually involved 22% of the entire population of France becoming the largest nation-wide wild-cat strike in French history.

The posters distributed during the two-month demonstrations were pasted over the walls, kiosks, and barricades of Paris daily. Generally printed in a single colour (green, blue, red, black and purple), they are characterized by their crude, confrontational imagery and rough hand-made text, yielding works of great communicative energy.

The posters were produced in studios all over Paris. The first to emerge on May 16 was a shop, named the “Atelier Populaire” at École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. The École de Medicine and the École National Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs also had print shops. Between mid-May and the end of June 1968, the Atelier Populaire created over 400 designs and the Atelier des Arts Décoratifs produced 100 posters.
