The Theatre War in Europe

Item type: Poster Date: 1960 = 1994 Description: Poster showing war-torn Europe being overseen by US President Ronald Reagan, who is seen sitting in a film director’s chair. This poster was created in the early 1980s by the American photo-montage artist Richard Slye. Most of Slye’s posters criticise the arms industry and many of them have been used by the US and Canadian peace movements. This poster was also part of an exhibition staged in the early 1980s by the Co-operative Retail Service, London Region political committee. The exhibition contained posters from every part of the world and was intended to show that people across the world were ‘united in opposing the continued insane nuclear arms race.” Most of the posters from this exhibition were donated to The Peace Museum.
