Chuck Sperry Gogol Bordello Paradiso Amsterdam Poster Release

Chuck Sperry on the design details of his new poster:

This poster is inspired by my stay in Milan, Italy a few years ago. In Milan I lived and worked in Centro Sociale Leoncavallo. The core group that held the occupied squat together (where I had my print studio) was the Mamme Antifasciste. The “Antifascist Mammas” are a strong, fine group of women who wove the fabric of society within the social center. They cooked food for everyone every night, taught Italian, organized meetings, gathered demonstrations, and projected plans for the squat and it’s guests. The “Mammas” have reached out to women and mothers throughout the world to participate in struggles in Chiapas, in Argentina, in Palestine, and locally in Italy. The figure in my poster draws from inspirational fighters of the partisan movements of WWII and the spirit of these movements right up to the present day. I painted The Mamme Antifasciste a new banner you can see at the bottom of the article linked HERE. And their old banner was retired to my studio, see above. -Chuck Sperry

Chuck will be making a very limited release of this poster and it’s variants on Sunday, November 17, 2013 at a random time at
