Politics and visual communication
How do politic parties present themselves to the public? In historical perspective it is interesting to see what the role of the designer has been in the communication of the party programme and think about how the design of the poster relates to the content of the various political parties. Were designers or illustrators involved? How does form fit with content? And how is the perception on the images by the voters? To answer those questions we have collected election posters from 1918 till now.
For now we have focused on The Netherlands and Germany; in the future the collection will be complemented with posters from Sweden (2012), France (2014), England (2016) and Italy (2018).
