The Green New Deal & Red Vienna: Reimagine Resources by Meg Studer

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Sunrise Movement
Proceeds support Sunrise Movement, a growing army of young people dedicate to making climate change an urgent priority across America, ending the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and electing leaders who stand up for the health and well-being of all people. While the Green New Deal is still in its infancy, at CAN we’ve taken up the charge of helping the public understand and imagine what could be possible with this exciting new set of policies -- just as the artists of the original New Deal helped to inform and advocate for those innovative programs over 80 years ago.

Artist Statement

This Green New Deal poster pulls from Red Vienna?s iconic graphics and integrated social & housing programs as inspiration for a just transition. During the New Deal, similar ?Vienna Method Pictorial Statistics? were used in the Soil Conservation Service's publications and the Rural Electrification Administration pamphlets. There?s also been plenty of discussion of Red Vienna, as a precedent for GND housing programs, in publications like Jacobin. In terms of content, the poster is based upon the ?plan? graphics from the Linz Housing Exhibition of 1929, designed by the graphics team at Vienna?s Museum of Society and Economy. Each reflected quarter shows the typical social services, architectural elements, and labor programs that were active in Vienna from ~1919 to 1934, as inspiration for equitable recovery initiatives today. - meg studer
