Curator's NotesA group of historical Antifa Jugendfront (Anti-Fascist Youth Front) stickers housed at Infoladen Daneben (http://daneben.blogsport.de/), Liebigstr. 34, Berlin-Friedrichshain, Germany. Sixteen stickers were fully intact, while the rest were cut apart and pasted onto four separate sheets of paper, probably for subsequent offset lithography print runs. Each sheet contained eight color-separated sticker designs; anything to be printed in black was pasted onto one sheet of paper and anything to be printed in red was pasted onto another sheet. To show variations of these designs side-by-side, Carolyn Dellinger (SLU '16) created a selection of diptych and triptych image files for the Street Art Graphics digital archive; she also catalogued the stickers and provided metadata for Description fields and Key Words. Similar Antifa Jugendfront stickers from 1988-1990 can be found online at the International Institute of Social History (http://socialhistory.org/en). At the time, Antifa Jugendfront was located at Gneisenaustr. 2a, 1000 Berlin 61. Such anti-fascist groups were popular during the late 1980s and early 1990s, and many remain active to this day.

A poster related to the "Frauen, wehrt und bewaffnet euch!" sticker can also be found at http://www.daslinkeforum.de/images/FILM78/78_12.JPG. -- Catherine Tedford
