(Secular Icons) Poster Protest Art (Liberal Israel)

An article here at Ha’aretz about a group of graphic art and design people creating posters against the regime coup in Israel. The activists formed a group whose work is offer at this Hebrew language FB page: Democracy Will Win” –Protest Posters.

According to the article, each poster goes through a process of group process and discussion. On Saturday, sites are set up in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem where demonstrators can pick up signs for the protest that evening. They reflect a liberal-national ethos.

Particularly strong are the posters that pun on figures and motifs that belong to the repertoire of secular Israeli Jewish culture.

I am posting two images here, but there are more at the Ha’aretz website and and new rounds of current work at the group’s FB page.
