Poster, Kabaret, 1973

This is a Poster. It is dated 1973 and we acquired it in 2010. Its medium is offset lithograph on wove paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

Górka, a leading participant in the Polish School of Poster Art, was a master of visual metaphor. Bob Fosse’s 1972 film, Cabaret, is set in a German nightclub during Hitler’s rise. In Górka’s visual pun, a strange cast of body parts converges to create a single disturbing image.

This object was donated by Marc Benda. It is credited Gift of Sara and Marc Benda.
