At a Glance
A collection of 110 Palestinian political posters ranging in date from 1978 to the mid nineties (8 from the 70s; 67 from the 80s; 27 from the 90s and 4 from 2000), and issued by various Palestinian political fractions (e.g. Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine PFLP, Palestinian Liberation Organization PLO, "Palestinian National Liberation Movement" Fatah, etc.). These posters were issued and printed in Beirut, Lebanon, and plastered the walls of the city streets during the years of the civil war, and thereafter. They represent a good window onto many aspects of Palestinian culture, history, politics, art, social anthropology, etc., during the crucial years spent by the PLO and other Palestinian resistance fractions in Beirut/Lebanon.
