Tear Down This Poster

Curator's note:

Carlos Latuff designed the poster on the left and Ryan Hayes designed the poster on the right


In 2009 some friends and I put up the poster on the right as a response to the tearing and defacement of Carlos Latuff’s IAW poster. At Carleton University in Ottawa, the administration saved vigilantes the hassle of doing their own censorship by banning the poster outright, an act that can’t be understood outside of the wider context of malfeasance by partisan administrators.
