Shanghai propaganda poster art center
The museum is located in a basement of an apartment building in HuaShan Lu in the former French Concession area. In order to get in, you have to ask the security guard. They will then give you a little card with the map of the apartment complex with the location of the museum, there’s isn’t any signage at all. The experience almost felt like trying to get to a speakeasy.
The museum carries a rich and rare collection of posters from the Maoist period of communist China, especially from the Cultural Revolution period. Most of these posters were hand made with wood block, stencils and painted.
