Red On Black: The Story Of The South African Poster Movement
'For me as craftsman, the act of creating art should complement the act of creating shelter for my family or liberating the country for my people. This is culture.'
- Thami Mnyele
In 2007, SAHA sponsored the publication of Red on Black: the Story of the South African poster movement by Judy Seidman, who was the SAHA poster curator at the time. This publication uses struggle posters, drawn predominantly from the SAHA Poster Collection (AL2446), to explore the history of these posters, providing an in-depth look into the artistic, political, and organisational forces within the South African poster movement.
