Exhibition: Social posters exhibition

Social posters convey their message to anyone in any country in almost any language. A social poster needs to alert and engage the viewer in a compelling and provocative fashion. The exhibition presents posters, which express concerns about a wide range of issues: from tolerance, environment and violence, to the influence of the state on the life of its citizens. Displayed posters contain also important topics related to Polish society.
