Propaganda Design: Cultural Revolution

Periodically I come upon collections of Chinese propaganda art. Whether or not you agree with what they’re promoting, it’s hard not to appreciate the design sensitivity of the artists behind the state’s image. This image is one from a collection posted by Flickr user Oldtasty and posted by Coudal Partners. Accompanying all the political and historical details on this site, I’m hoping to include more on the aesthetic and cultural angles as time goes on.
