This set of twenty-nine posters encased within lead-clad boards documents the actions of various activist groups in New York’s Lower East Side during the last two decades of the twentieth century. In the environs of the [in]famous Tompkins Square Park, artist-activists (including ACT-UP, Chris Burden, Andrew Castrucci, Allen Ginsberg, and David Wojnarowicz) for various causes (including AIDS care, public housing reform, and gay and lesbian rights) convened at the anarchist haven Bullet Space in order to print an edition of 300 posters. Half of the posters were posted in the neighborhood; the other half were compiled into the Your House is Mine volume. The set includes these posters as well as a newsprint publication that describes the project and its causes. As representative and documentary of radical, street-focused artistic sentiment in the 80s and 90s as it is of those decades’ leftist political fringe, this collection is a monumental addition to the Art & Architecture Library.
