Art of Crass poster

Fight War Not Wars : the art of Crass

  • 1 — 18 June 2016

Formed in 1977, Crass were the ultimate proponents of the DIY punk ethic. They ran their own record label, produced elaborate fold-out record sleeves and posters, spray-painted graffiti messages around London, distributed zines and booklets at gigs and were famous for their formidable live performances. Questions about the band were raised in parliament and they remained a thorn in the side of the establishment up to - and beyond - their break-up in 1984.

This exhibition from Interact includes records, posters, prints, videos, books and other items. Thought-provoking, confrontational, angry and beautiful in equal measures, the art of Crass remains as important now as it was almost four decades ago.
