Nasser Road – Political Posters in Uganda
|Author||Kristof Titeca ed.|
|Publisher||The Eriskay Connection|
Anything can be produced and sold along Nasser Road in Kampala, from university degrees to fake identity cards. But one of its main products is posters portraying heads of state and dictators as superpowered fighters – highly charged geopolitical depictions of the struggle against Western imperialism, in which international villains are celebrated as anti-heroes. The United States, Russia, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, North Korea, China, and various African nations are all players in a glorified military-industrial complex. Collector Kristof Titeca presents a selection of posters, with contextual images by Ugandan photographers and an essay by activist Yusuf Serunkuma.
