Peter-Paul Zahl's "Polit-Porno" Posters

p5-peter-pauls-porno-und-polit-poster. Two original posters from the series.

[Berlin]: [ca. 1968-70]. Two posters on yellow and blue stock, offset litho, measuring 34 x 45 cm each. Both rolled, with light wear and a few light creases.

Two of eleven political posters with sexual motifs advertised as "p5-peter-pauls-porno-und-polit-poster" and printed by Peter-Paul Zahl (1944-2011), the German anarchist writer, publisher and printer. Among countless others, Zahl printed the radical leftist journal "Agit 883" and was put under surveillance for his other connections to the student protest scene and APO in West Berlin. Zahl was later part of a small covert organization, as well as sympathizing and aiding several members of RAF; from 1972-82 he was in prison. These posters, from an earlier and comparatively tame period (presumably 1968-70) combine Beardsley's erotic drawings with allusions to German politics. The other poster was titled "Disneyland - for the children's room". Also included is a photocopy of the catalog offering these eleven posters. Not traceable by us; not in KVK, OCLC.
