¡AQUI! Magazine No. 7 - General Idea (Brooklyn, NY: 1985).

Ed. Cliff Baldwin, Julie Bradrick, and Davi Het Hompson. Over-sized screenprint poster, folded, contained in cellophane wrapper between two individual sheets, one of them printed in black on gold-coloured stock and featuring an image of General Idea (Felix Partz, Jorge Zontal and AA Bronson). Packaged in a clear plastic wallet with the ¡Aqui! logo printed in red on an attached yellow paper label. 45x31.5cm.

The enormous and beautifully printed poster, measuring 173x114cm. (unfolded), features a gigantic white poodle with gold regalia on a deep, rich black ground. The poodle was one of General Idea's main symbols, and this heraldic version is based on the flag of Ghent, Belgium, substituting a poodle for the original lion.

¡Aqui! issued a series of 10 silkscreened posters by various artists between 1984 and 1986, among them Les Levine, Barbara Kruger, and Gilbert & George, each one described by Cliff Baldwin as "a portable, collapsible space that existed wherever the viewer was at the time."

The cellophane wrapper has been neatly opened at the top, and the poster removed once, otherwise as new. Edition limited to 250 copies.
