Atelier populaire de l'ex Ecole des Beaux-Arts, A bas les cadence... (1968)

SKU: ArtOwn21

Serigraph on paper, bright pink and orange, made by the Atelier populaire de l'ex Ecole des Beaux-Arts (the popular workshop of the former Fine Arts School) during the French uprisings of May 1968 (43 x 53 cm | framed, 43 x 53 cm). "A bas les cadences infernales", "Down with the infernal cadences", symbolise workers' call to improve working conditions against the increasing mecanisation of production processes.


The Atelier populaire de l'ex Ecole des Beaux-Arts comprised several artists who later became well-known artists. May 1968 serigraphs strike through the efficacity of their design and the efficacity of their messages, which are to be looked at in conjunction with the then political context. No one has been attributed the paternity of these serigraphs, as this was contrary to the collective spirit of the movement.

Location: London, United Kingdom
