CAEL3022: Posters to Paste-ups - Public space

Images made for public space have been integral to modern art. This unit looks at printmedia's role in this history, surveying agitprop graphics and subcultural poster making to examine the currency of screen-printing and digital processes in urban intervention. This will support studio research and the production of print works intended for public display.
