Five months after the mayoral election, Munich residents are heading back to the polls Sept 28th, this time to elect a new state parliament. Political posters are all over the city, including some that are socially charged. Personally, I liked the propaganda-ish feel to this one, and the view of the men and women walking in Suits in the background towards the Eon Energy building. Lots of powerful images. I’m not sure if the designers of this poster realized that the image was originally from “Rosie the Riveter” which was done for the American forces in their quest to defeat Germany in WWII. It turns out that the poster, when released, had limited feel and it wasn’t until feminist values peaked after the war that this image became a powerful icon.
