At the Mons Memorial Museum, from 6 February to 19 December
14th edition of the political poster triennial

For more than 30 years, the political poster triennial has, above all, opened the debate by highlighting the major political, social and environmental challenges within our societies.  

The political poster triennial is an international competition open to professional graphic designers and students of Plastic Arts schools elaborating the political theme in the first sense of the term: life in the city and society.  
Created in 1978 at the initiative of the Cultural Council of the Mons Regional Cultural Centre, the first triennial specifically developed the theme of social struggles.  

European until 1995, the event is now open to the whole world. 
These posters highlight all aspects of social life: Human Rights, North-South and Third World issues, world hunger, the fall of communism, minorities, migration, racism and fascism, secrecy, depopulation, the holocaust, the environment, AIDS, homelessness, poverty, violence against women, abuse, and more. But it also covers themes more in line with the current events of the last three years.  

For this 14th edition, we will find plenty of illustrations on subjects such as global warming and the well-publicised actions of Greta Thunberg, the #metoo movement, the American politics embodied by Donald Trump, and more.  
More than 11,000 posters are curated by MARS, Mons arts de la scène (Mons performing arts).
