Solidarity Poster: A Vote for Solidarity is a Step Toward Freedom

"twoj glos dla Solidarnosci krokiem ku wolnosci."
"Your vote for Solidarity is a step toward freedom."
Poster from Krakow, Poland, 1989. 

An article by me is scheduled to appear in a scholarly journal sometime soon featuring the above poster, and discussing it in relation to the following works of art:
