A selection of posters from Medu Art Ensemble, Botswana
`What does true political conciousness mean to the artist in my country? We need to clearly popularise and give dignity to the just thoughts and deeds of the people... It was in Medu Art Ensemble where the role of an artist concretised itself: the role of an artist is to learn; the role of an artist is to teach others; the role of an artist is to ceaselessly search for the ways and means of achieving freedom. Art cannot overthrow a government, but it can inspire change.'
Thami Mnyele, Culture and Resistance Festival, Gaborone. 1982.
