All Of Us Or None Archive. Gift of the Rossman Family.

Bottom edge under image has "The Avant-Garde Tradition/ No. 6/ c. 25/30/ Ideological Coverup" handwritten in pencil.

The top portion of the poster has a representation of the Love print in blue, red and green. The bottom right corner of the stamp is being lifted up by a man in black and white and reveals a group of soldiers holding guns in brown. In front of them is a man and a woman running away with their arms up in black and white. Poster is mounted on cardstock. This graphic is a political parody of the iconic "LOVE" print by Robert Indiana, first created as a Christmas card for New York's Museum of Modern Art in 1964. Kaiper injects the harsh reality of domestic state represssion behind Indiana's happy graphic. [LMC]
