AIDS Demo Graphics
by Douglas Crimp
Publisher's Description
This collection of graphic images produced by artists working with the activist group ACT UP addresses social and political issues of AIDS from a militant perspective. Informed by the tradition of protest posters, Madison Avenue advertising, and postmodern techniques for appropriation, these design have been used for demonstration placards, T-shirts, and buttons, stickers and guerrilla subway posters. In his introductory essay, Douglas Crimp recounts the history of socially engaged art activities produced in response to the AIDS epidemic and locates these activities within wider debates about postmodernity.
