Poster Workshop 1968-1971

$17.50

From 1968 to 1971, anyone could drop in to the basement in Camden Town (London) and commission a poster from the Poster Workshop. In walked workers on strike, tenants associations, civil rights groups and liberation movements from all over the world. Inspired by the Atelier Populaire, set up in Paris in May 1968, the posters were made quickly to respond to what was needed, on a great number of themes: Vietnam, Northern Ireland, housing, workers rights, and revolution.

The Poster Workshop thrived on the energy generated by the belief that huge changes were possible, through movements for equality, civil rights, freedom and revolution. It was an expression of that time—of excitement, change and hope.
