University As Factory? No!

One of a series of French May 1968 posters originally designed by the Atelier Populaire, reworked and updated for a 21st century context. Like the originals, they are offered here to be used, re-purposed, and reworked.

Hundreds of these were risograph printed and distributed in NYC before May Day 2018. If you want to support the distribution of free posters, consider buying a print of this image! Money goes towards printing more posters!


A cupola of a university sits above a simplified factory shape. The domed roof cracks as a bolt of lightning emerges from the sky. Text reads: “UNIVERSITY AS FACTORY, NO!”
