Posters Network

We are a network of posters specialists. Our aim is to make links between the poster collections of the UK, and to raise their profile.

The spirit of the Network is to enable the exchange of knowledge and expertise, so that links and collaborations can develop. We are committed to highlighting recently-formed and lesser-known poster collections, as well as major UK resources.

Collectively, the UK poster collections are an amazing international resource of art, design and graphic communication, and also of social and cultural history.

The Posters Network is one of the Subject Specialist Networks supported by Arts Council England.

  • What is Europe?

    is Europa?

    from a Continent


    Europe is a word we regularly and confidently refer to. But
    how many of us stop for a moment and ask what Europe actually is? That
    is what The Danish Poster Museum is doing in the exhibition, What Is Europe? The
    poster is a powerful medium and always tendentious, reaching out, as it does, for
    an audience to communicate something very specific. In posters we find the
    sense of self of the individual countries or of groups within them, elucidated
    in a crystallised form. Overall, the posters provide a take on the history of
    European mentality.

    The exhibition can be seen throughout 2017.
