Posters for Freedom Mobile
The Posters for Freedom website is a bilingual, accessible, online companion piece to the Posters for Freedom in-gallery installation, both a part of the Mandela: Struggle for Freedom exhibit commemorating the 150th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s birth.
From home, or using tablets from the exhibit floor, visitors can create custom demonstration posters using a variety of custom-created images and phrases inspired by the anti-apartheid movement’s grassroots aesthetic. Upon completion of a poster, all published posters make a brief appearance on the gallery wall of printed and digitally projected posters.
Visitors may download a high-resolution copy of their poster, or view their own and others’ work in a posters Tumblr gallery. Server-side, an exhibit-branded sidebar is added to each visitor-created poster upon publication, so that posters shared via social media further promote the Mandela exhibit.
Anti-apartheid demonstration posters, created on the go.
