Agitprop Notes Book Launch
May 18, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm BST
We are delighted to launch the second issue of the MayDay Rooms Pamphlet series, Agit-Prop Notes.
Agit-Prop Notes documents the radical print culture that erupted in the 1970s, which saw political and social movement groups taking-up newly accessible and affordable small off-set litho, screen printing and duplication technologies to produce leaflets, newspapers, flyers, comics bulletin, positioning papers all in the aid of struggle. It looks at how types of collective production and design gave material form to types of organisation, experimentation, orientation and authority.
With original contribution from Social Commontating, Esther McManus and Guglielmo Rossi, and archival reproduction of documents from Big Frame, Wapping Dispute, Resistance Comics, Union Place: Community Resource Centre and Radical Bookseller.
The event will be a chance to hear about the publication, view the archive material included in it, buy a copy of the pamphlet and have a drink!
The MayDay Rooms Pamphlet Series presents documents from radical histories, offering a space for extended engagement and critical reflections on their contemporary relevance. Each pamphlet contains newly created content – including essays, poems, and illustrations – set alongside reproductions of materials to which they are responding.
