Original Vintage French Poster "Universite Populaire" MAY 1968 Protests

More Views

This poster is typical of the series of posters printed in the wake of May 1968 in France. The May 1968 protest refers to a particular period in French history. It was historically significant for being the first wildcat general strike ever, and for bringing the economy of an advanced industrial country to a virtual standstill. These posters were printed by means of serigraphy and were instant answers to the official positions. They are a mirror of the events of May 68. This poster calls for the instauration of a “popular university”.
