A prime example of design for political persuasion, the work of Fidel Castro’s Organisation of Solidarity with the People of Asia, Africa and Latin America (OSPAAAL) was marked by uncompromising illustrations championing Cuba’s revolutionary message.
Throughout the Cold War artists including Alfredo Rostgaard, Helena Serrano and Emory Douglas produced provocative posters that were distributed in their millions alongside Tricontinental, a magazine that featured illustrated articles by Jean Paul Sartre, Che Guevara and Malcolm X.
