This exhibit illustrates how gentrification and the lack of affordable housing are creating life-threatening conditions throughout the world—and posters are key for organizing resistance. They announce demonstrations, oppose demolitions, protest restrictive covenants, recruit for tenants unions, and support squatters’ rights to move into abandoned buildings. Powerful graphics document victories and ongoing confrontations. And whether the residents win or lose, they become empowered in the process of fighting for the stability of their communities—and the posters record their struggle and their empowerment.
