Chinese Political Poster Art from the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution

Irvine -- For our next show, KUCI's Subversity radio program interviews the compilers of a new collection of Chinese political poster art from the Cultural Revolution. We chat with Lincoln Cushing, a librarian/scholar of political posters and with Ann Tompkins, whose collection of such posters has just come out in a wonderful compilation from Chronicle Books, Chinese Posters: Art from the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution.

We also chat with an Chinese American activist mentioned in the book, Steve Louie, about the impact of the Cultural Revolution, and its art, on social and political movements here.

The show airs from 9-10 a.m. on Monday, 22 October, 2007, on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County, Calif., and is simulcast on the Web via

The bulk of the poster collection is housed at the East Asia Library at University of California,
