The sale Mai ’68 en 500 affiches (May ’68 in 500 posters) marks the 50th anniversary this year of the historical turning point of May ’68, the civil unrest that began with student protests at Paris universities and carried through to nationwide worker strikes and the dissolution of the French National Assembly. The 500 lots comprise posters made between May and June 1968, many designed and printed by art students in the movement, were collected by the media producer Laurent Storch.
