the porous city

This collection of Chinese propaganda posters led me on a search for equivalent Russian designs. I had trouble coming up with what I thought of as archetypal Soviet propaganda posters, until I realized I was looking for a specific school called Constructivism. Constructivism turns out to be a classic old-school capital-letter Movement with (occasionally rabid) proponents in education and the arts. I want to argue passionately about ideas and make love as a political act. I want to belong to a movement. That said, I'm still looking for a good online gallery of Constructivist propaganda posters.
