This publication relates to three weeks of poster-making and reflections in Jordan by writer Giulia Damiani in collaboration with The Studio based in Amman. Besides the rich history of printing techniques and political messages behind the proliferation of posters, we focused on the liberating facet of this printed object: as the artist André Breton famously claimed“one publishes to find comrades!”. The posters are reproductions from a series on discouragement. This subject was chosen for its resonance in contemporary political rhetoric and inter-nations exchange.
This project was awarded the Step Beyond Grant by the European Cultural Foundation and took place in 2016
