Libertad de Expresion Mexico 68

Acquisition Number: 1996-069

Student-led protests over the Government’s heavy investment into Olympic facilities rather than social programs were quelled ten days before the Mexico City Games opened. In sympathy with the students, Adolfo Mexiac adapted and distributed a linocut he had made in 1954. His addition of the ‘Mexico 68’ logo draws a sarcastic parallel between the Olympic rings and the links of the gagging chain. Part of a portfolio, Libertad de Expresion Mexico 68 Mexican Student Protest Posters From the Uprising 1968 Studies in the Third World Inc.
