OSPAAL supported the Black Panther Party and condemned apartheid in South Africa. Its graphic designs called for the unity of North and South Korea and criticised the existence of Guantanamo Bay. The organisation's magazine, Tricontinental, was founded in 1967 and has had some surprising contributors; Jean-Paul Sartre and Jane Fonda are known to have written articles for the publication.
The colourful and provocative works set to go on display in this exhibition are highly sought after now. They speak speak both of the struggles of the Cold War and unresolved conflicts that rumble on. But politics aside, the graphics are hugely striking. This will be a very popular exhibition.
