      — After reading the Marshall McLuhan excerpt , the sample of the Whole Earth catalog, and a short essay on the artist Sister Corita, your assignment is to find two (hi-res) images and post them in the discussion  part of the website.  The first should be a striking visual image of an event , which will be added to our 1968 timeline . The second should be a piece of protest art from the time. Make sure to include captions and artist attributions where applicable.

      Other homework:
      Get to the ICA to see the Black Radical Women exhibition before it closes on Sept 29.
      Start thinking about what you want to protest now. Begin doodling out ideas for your own protest poster.

      An American soldier with the First Army Division sleeps atop a sandbag bunker during a monsoon downpour following heavy Vietcong sniper and mortar fire near Phuc Vihn, South Vietnam. Photo by Toshio Sakai/UPI. 1968 Pulitzer Prize Winner in Feature Photography.

      This classic poster of May ’68 depicts unity between French and immigrant workers. France had recruited many workers from Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia to help build railroads and other infrastructure or industrial installations. A short man, who appears to symbolize the factory owners or owners of capital, tries to push them apart. The slogan reads, “Workers united.”

      Helmets used in Japanese student protests in Universities. Helmets often had slogans or the names of the department the student belonged to to show solidarity. In 1968 when protests at universities was “peaking” roughly 70% of universities and colleges were protesting corruption within administrations or poor treatment of students.

      The sign reads: “Anyone who has nowhere to go, come join us! Fight against the Enterprise. Beheiren (acronym for Vietnam peace association)”. The anti-Vietnam war movement in Japan was very big. Some activists helped American soldiers defect, and many saw the US fighting in Asia as an extension of their grievances with the unequal US-Japan security alliance that came under major debate and protest in 1960 and again in 1970.

      This screen-printed poster [by Doug Lawler] portrays a grim American eagle raining fire down on peasants struggling to maintain their traditional way of life; the artfully composed hand lettering reinforces the title’s text.

      An image from the Poster Workshop, which was set up in the summer of 1968 in a basement in Camden Road, Camden Town, London and continued until 1971. It was inspired by the Atelier Populaire, set up in the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris, in May 1968. This poster advocates for homeless populations in London at the time.
