Red Wedge/Black Wedge

Playing off El Lissitzky’s 1919 painting, Strike the Whites with the Red Wedge. But hell, any wedge will do.

Please use and spread, Lissitzky would approve.

A cubist-inspired image of a Ku Klux Klan hood, made up of a white triangle and two black eye-holes, being hewn in half by a piercing, red triangle. Other versions show the anti-Klan triangle to be black. Another version shows the top half of the KKK triangle on the ground, completely severed by the antifascist triangles.
