Sometimes these posters don’t just reflect reality, but have served, as Bertholt Brecht exhorted, as hammers with which to shape reality. These images are calls to action for struggles that have sometimes escalated into battles, and that have sometimes even changed the relations of power. The International Hotel posters by the SF Poster Brigade...—come to mind. They are testament to a moment in history that altered people’s perceptions of housing and development struggles in San Francisco..." Review of Inkworks book by Fernando Martí,
