From the collaborative efforts of the Atelier Populaire, a group of Parisian students that assembled in protest of their institutions and larger governmental bureaucracy in the spring of 1968, this poster and many others like it were plastered throughout Paris as a demonstration of the youth's outrage. Here, this historical poster features a human figure assuming a submissive position with the words "On vous intoxique!" –translated as "You are being poisoned"– hovering above the figure's head. Mapped throughout the body of the figure are allusions to the sources of this poisoning, like television and radio, suggesting that the public has been corrupted by government propaganda.
