DESCRIPTION
The posters of the Spanish Civil War have become the emblematic signs of a national conflict that turned international. Described as "shouts from the wall," the vibrancy of the color and design of the posters, and their messages, signaled for many the powerful role that propaganda played in creating an image of war. Along with the posters, was the publication in Spain of hundreds of magazines. This exhibition, organized by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, shows the diversity and relationships among the original magazines, posters, vintage photographs, and archival documents from Spain and the United States.
