“Post-Posters” Puncture Public Discourse in Strasbourg, France

“Post-Posters” Puncture Public Discourse in Strasbourg, France

Post-Posters in the city of Strasbourg, France From March through May 2019


“Actions Speak Louder Than Ass Ads,” says a new stencil-style printed poster by New York’s epic, if sometimes cryptic, street commentator of four decades, John Fekner. Anyway, who will argue with that?

Post-posters is a cooperative proposition about public billposting,” says French conceptual street anarchist Matthew Tremblin about his new project with hit-and-run situationist street posterer Antonio Gallego. Together they reclaim space with individually produced posters and they invite artists from around the world to do the same.

Over a two month period the creative placemakers are facilitating an  international crew of artists to post posters on the occasion of the double exhibition by Banlieue-Banlieue group* (°1982, Poissy) taking place in Strasbourg, at both AEDAEN and the Syndicat Potentiel.

The simple plotter printing and limited color palette give the collection of sentiments and sneaky statements a pre-Internet flavor, now delivered in the streets with post-Internet zeal. As advertisers begin to take more public space and mind space with screens of all sorts on the streets, these simple posters actually can appear to be more powerful.

Given that the streets of Strasbourg are regularly ringed by smoke bombs and the air is full of chants from the raging Yellow Vest protests, this campaign may also strike you as a Situationist protest against predatory capitalism now metastasizing into corporate fascism in so-called Western societies.

Or it may simply seem like a lot of curious posters.
