Artefact

A batch of posters intended for promotional use within the University and across town. Flypostering was the most effective method of marketing for gigs back in the 80s and 90s, a quick sweep of the posters plastered over building sites and closed down businesses was the main way of finding out what what happening in the City and you'd often see the stripped remains of some posters that were pinched as trophies by fans - and 'The Mafia', if you believe the stories of gang related connections with flypostering sites in Manchester.
