Browse through the archives of the the Taller de Gráfica Popular, a Mexico City-based workshop which created prints for handbills and newspapers beginning in 1937. Much of the work is politically-charged, reflecting the rapid changes which took place in Mexico during World War II. The exhibit provides a unique visual perspective on an uncertain time in Mexico's history, as documented by a collective of talented artists.
