On Liberal Warfare

A poster made after the fact for a lecture by Alexander Zevin at Potts which became the first Apogee Graphics publication. The talk Zevin gave on the occasion of Ben Sakoguchi’s exhibition traced the emergence of liberal warfare—including America’s use of atomic weapons against Japan in the Second World War—from the imperialism of free trade as practiced by the British in the nineteenth century to applications of US airpower in the present, leading to a state of war as invisible as it is constant. Zevin was photographed by artist Diane Severin Nguyen for this poster, bringing out his most ethereal self.
