The sequel to "hoch die kampf dem. 20 jahre autonome plakate". The subtitle "uncontrollable movements" also points to the fact that HKS13 no longer wants to limit themselves thematically on the poster culture of the autonomous movements (mainly from the 1980s/1990s) but took the trail of the posters back to the sixties.
