Propaganda Sunday

More  on propaganda art…

As opposed to more “inspiring” and nationalistic attempts at garnering support for the Soviet cause (like the one on the side about “A Mighty Sports Power”) this poster aims at being simple and therefore effective.

Other posters are usually in Russian but this one in English obviously aims at a more international audience. The Soviet Union wanted to promote a positive image of itself throughout the early 1970s against a backdrop of the Vietnam War and a highly volatile relationship with the USA.

    1. Johan excellent excellent post
      I love the art on these posters and have some from china up in my room. I wish Pakistan itself had some internet searchable propaganda art.
      I have an article being published on such art and slogans. I hope you will read on the weekend.
