In response to serious cuts in public funding in 1992, ten artists contributed silkscreens to benefit the Alternative Museum in New York.
Like the museum, the artists represented in this box set of prints address social and humanitarian issues in their imagery, which still resonate in today cultural landscape. Subjects include Lenin lying in state (Komar & Melamid), police-state abuse (Leon Golub) and Jeffersonian ironies (Luis Jimenez).
