“Trump 14K Gold-Plated”
$75.00 - $200.00
We issued our now notorious “Trump 24K Gold-Plated” and “Trump 14K Gold-Plated” posters in September, 2016 as a warning—two months before the November 6 U.S. presidential election.
To some Americans, the attractive aspects of Donald Trump’s public persona can obscure his repellent views. The tension in our design between positive and negative space—between luxe gold foil letters and the matte black swastika—is meant to mirror this dualism.
We originally offered this poster in exchange for a donation to the ACLU or Planned Parenthood.
