Exhibition posters by Peter Pocs

At the exhibition of Peter Pocs "POSTERMANIA" we can see a summary of the graphic designer's activity of the last 25 years.

The exhibition, which shows 120 cultural and political posters, is a document of the euphorical period of the Hungarian transition from the communist regime to democracy, is documentation for a rich theatre, cultural festival and fine arts life of Hungary.

We can meditate on, in connection with the 50 years anniversary of the Hungarian revolution in 1956, its importance to our common history, and its relevance to todays political processes.

There are a few commercial posters as well, which praise Tamas T. Nagy and Heine Sveistrup Jensen for their orderings.
