This poster by Dutch design collective Wild Plakken advertises a performance of Ariadne auf Naxos, a 1912 opera by Richard Strauss.
Wild Plakken, meaning “wild pasting”, was formed by designers Lies Ros and Rob Schroder in 1977. The group designed posters for social and political causes as well as cultural events. The name originates from their practice, in their early years, of pasting posters up around Amsterdam without permission.
