STANCE: Design Against Fascism Exhibition
May 1, 2018
typotherapy designed two posters ‘Dueling Ideologies’ and ‘Fascism is Racist’. The Dueling Ideologies poster reinterpretation consisted of an expressive typographic language, along side the symbolic ‘Dueling ideologies’ gun graphic, which was created using hands on / computer free techniques and processes inspired by the original poster. Custom constricting letterforms (as if the letters are closing in) were created. The typographic arrangement of falling letters depicts the collapse of the political process and democracy itself.
The ‘Fascism is Racist’ poster reinterpretation focuses on who (theirs) are. It depicts an illustrated clinched hand, attempting to exterminate the “liberal vision of multicultural, multi-religious, multi-racial society”. It also brings to light a selection of fascist actions/political parties and movements that have adopted fascist traits since the turn of the century. The ‘star symbol’ (theirs) indicates the connection to the original statement, to both the clinched fist, and significant fascist actions/political parties and movements.
