Radiantly Optimistic Poster Show
We are inspired by the groundswell of optimistic and visionary activities
in the late 1960s and early 1970s. We are interested in this time
period and the massive countercultural movement it produced in the
face of international political and social turmoil. We find ourselves
in a similar global environment of unprecedented crises and we are
wondering how we can make visible and cohesive the currently existing
activities. Is there potential to add to the optimistic histories
of past activisms with our own movements? This project seeks to create
a discussion about the place of optimism in the face of war, environmental
devastation, and global capitalism. We asked people to make posters
about their own work or reflect on how we can make optimistic plans
to all go along together.
