strength, power and good luck, misinforms the viewer. Hitler utilized this symbol to gain power, and maintain power in German during WWII. Hitler’s poster defines how posters can be to create movements against social justice as well. At the time, it seemed that Hitler was promoting social justice for Germans, although he planned to eliminate all Germans outside of the Arian race. This propaganda illustrates how posters can be used for political campaigns whether they are true, false, helpful or hurtful. Understanding that political posters are common, one must remember the message is not always beneficial. However, as JR and Martinez mentioned, its not the art that promotes the social change, but the conversations about them. In conclusion, posters are powerful messages that are able to attract a lot of attention based on their location, and the poster itself. While some posters are able to promote social change and bring attention to negative issues, propaganda can be included in this form of art. When art is created for a purpose it is powerful. Art can be used for good or bad; just like any violent weapon. The power of the posters is enabled by the communication and collaboration following the poster.
