More than 40 years have passed since the French students occupied the streets of Paris, triggering one of the most important social revolts of recent history. I do not know what remains still alive from this era, except these beautifully designed posters, landmarks of political art and graphic design.
A group of art students, who called themselves the Atelier Populaire, produced hundreds of posters to encourage the protestors and to report on police brutality.
Beauty is in the Street is a visual record from May ’68 Paris uprising edited by Johan Kugelberf with Philippe Vermes (Four Corner Books).
