Posters of Protest and Dissent
This exhibition presents posters made by See Red Women’s Workshop, a silk screening collective founded in London in 1974. With minimal means, See Red set out to make consciousness-raising posters which contested sexist stereotyping and encouraged women to recognise their personal experiences as deeply politicized.View Exhibition
Events & Activities
In the audio recordings accompanying this exhibition, founding members of See Red Women’s Workshop recall the motivations behind their posters, as well as the processes of their design and production.
Throughout June, the Micro Museum will work with young people at Langdon Park School to explore See Red’s experiences. Pupils will record their own perspectives for the exhibition and produce screenprinted posters about equality today.
More events to be announced soon.
