dc.description.abstract Peace, Politics, and PostZionism presents the first attempt at a comprehensive historical account of left-wing graphic design produced in Israel from the early 1970s until 2010. This study of graphic design artifacts and practices demonstrates that a generation of Israeli designers in the 1970s initiated the continuing creation of culturally specific visual languages that challenge the grand narrative of Zionism, the political movement that led to the 1948 declaration of an independent Jewish state in Palestine and the settlement of millions of Jews there. The designers who initially contributed to the creation of a space in which alternative and minority voices could speak about the country’s complex and contradictory political and social reality continue to be joined by new generations of practitioners. en_US
