This poster was produced by Proletkult, an artist co-op called Proletarskaia Kultura
(Proletarian Culture). It was established in 1917 to provide the foundations for proletarian art said to have been "liberated" from bourgeois, pre-Soviet culture. Although its membership tried to remain apolitical, the organization advocated the proletariat would create a culture where art emphasized collective accomplishments of individuals, workers and peasants. Proletkult peaked in the early post-revolutionary period before being absorbed into the adult education section of the Commissariat of Education in 1920.
