"Kill for Peace from the portfolio Artists and Writers Protest Against the War in Viet Nam" by Carol Summers, 1967

Organized by artist Jack Sonenberg, the portfolio ARTISTS AND WRITERS PROTEST AGAINST THE WAR IN VIET NAM was a fundraising initiative for Artists and Writers, Protest, Inc, a group that staged anti-war demonstrations throughout the late 1960s. The 16 artists who contributed to the portfolio employed a range of aesthetic strategies, from graphic representations of anguished bodies to abstractions that critiqued the conflict in symbolic rather than literal ways.

In May 1970, students at the University of California, Berkeley, came together to form the Berkeley Political Poster Workshop, which produced hundreds of silkscreen designs. Under the guidance of Malaquias Montoya, a leading figure of the Chicano Art Movement, the workshop class was the largest of its kind. The posters stem from demonstrations against a wave of militant conservatism in the early 1970s: not only the 1970 massacre of four unarmed students at Kent State University by members of the National Guard, but also the continued Vietnam War and President Nixon’s decision to reinstate the military draft.
