Renault-Billancourt. Auto-Défense.

Paris: École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts, 1968. Original sikscreen poster, printed in dark blue on white paper, with stamp of the Écoles des Beaux-Arts to lower left corner. 56x41cm. The poster depicts workers outside the huge Renault-Billancourt factory on the outskirts of Paris holding up a large placard reading 'Renault-Billancourt. Auto-Défense' ('Renault-Billancourt. Self-Defence'). The strike began on May 16th and immediately triggered a wave of further strikes and occupations, initially in Paris, then throughout France, spreading rapidly into the public sector and soon eclipsing the student revolt that preceded them. Conservation linen lined. Near Fine.
