STRIKETHROUGH

This is the third poster I designed for The Name Game, a series of posters that forms one component of the Equations for a Body at Rest project. These posters were on display at different billboard sites across Birmingham during the Commonwealth Games in 2022.

If the first two posters, Cape to Cairo and Word Games, engage with the past and present respectively, this one is forward-looking. Where British (or any) imperialism persists – whether in ideological, political or economic terms – what will it take to dismantle it? What is the future built on?
