Poster campaigns

The national assembly elections in Germany on 19 January 1919 caused an unprecedented spate of poster campaigns. The parties competed for people’s votes with artistic images and slogans full of promises, threats, and warnings. In November 1918 the new government had already set up the "publicity service of the German Socialist Republic". It commissioned famous expressionist artists to design posters. In December 1919 right-wing German industrialists began financing antidemocratic campaigns to foster oppositional militias.
