Poster 1

This GDR poster was made for the 1989 anniversary celebrations which never happened.
Ironically, a quite different national event was unfolding, namely the Wende: at this time of mass demonstrations, exodus, round-table debates and the breaching of the Berlin Wall, the language on the streets was not the official language of this poster but the handwritten slogans and mottoes of the citizens who sought change.
