Parts of Peter Kuper’s presentation that applied to the history of poster illustration:
Coca Cola Posters typecast Santa Claus as wearing a red outfit
“YOU GIVE US THE FIRE, WE’LL GIVE THEM HELL” War Propaganda Posters for WWII
Backlash to these posters, satire such as “YOU give us the fire, WE’LL bomb who we want!”
Political propaganda can be as controlled as a government-issued poster or as volatile as an anonymous wheat pasted piece of graffiti. The kind of graffiti he saw in Oaxaca could be considered political poster art.
