Best political posters

13 political posters that show why the world needs to change

With so many issues challenging society at the moment, it’s sometimes tempting to lull ourselves with trivial distractions. But don’t worry help is at hand. One very immediate and very powerful way to refocus our minds on sorting out this wonderful world is the political poster. It has a long and colourful history and now, thanks to “Mut Zur Wut” (courage to rage) an international poster contest held in Heidelberg, Germany, it’s having a renaissance. This year over 2,600 posters were received from 1312 artists from 50 countries. Here is a selection of the best from the last five years.

    Thanks for putting these together. If only urban ad space could be taken over by posters like this rather than the corporate brainwashing to which we are used, things might even change. Who knows.
