Jerzy Srokowski. Plan 6 Letni, Wykuwamy Podstawy Socjalizmu. 1949

Jerzy Srokowski Plan 6 Letni, Wykuwamy Podstawy Socjalizmu 1949

  • Not on view

Poland was devastated during World War II and its infrastructure ruined. In the process of reconstruction, a new social and political order was to be forged through the centralized production of industry. The red-hot 6 in this poster proclaims the ideological superiority of the six-year plan designed to bring Poland’s agricultural economy into closer alignment with that of the USSR. The style and socialist content of political posters was more tightly regulated by state agencies than those for cultural events.
