"Solidarity " Ephemera

Broadside: Berlin 1936 Moskwa 1980.

Poland, ca. 1980. Single leaf printed recto, measuring 30 × 21.5 cm. Very good. In archival mylar sleeve.

An early Solidarność poster, likely from the period leading up to the 1980 Moscow Olympic games. The image deftly comments on the political use of the Olympic games by totalitarian regimes. Here the depiction of a tank whose barrel turns into an Olympic logo links the infamous Olympic games in Berlin in 1936 at the height of Nazism and Moscow’s upcoming games amidst the rising pressure from Moscow on Polish political order.
