Kiss Kiss Kill Kill: The Graphic Art and Forgotten Spy Films of Cold War Europe

29 SEPTEMBER - 10 NOVEMBER 2012, GALLERY 2, ABERYSTWYTH ARTS CENTRE, ABERYSTWYTH UNIVERSITY, CEREDIGION SY23 3DE. This exhibition, curated by Richard Rhys Davies, shows promotional posters for espionage films made on both sides of the Iron Curtain during the Cold War. Different graphic styles in the East and West provide a snapshot of European taste, national identity and politics during this period, with the kitsch of Italian cinema posters juxtaposed with the low-tech of non-commercial Czech film posters.

Kiss Kiss Kill Kill at Aberystwyth Arts Centre is a full remix of a touring exhibition first developed in partnership with UH Galleries and the Goethe-Institut, London.  The new show presents new acquisitions previously unseen in addition to newly restored pieces from the original show.  Full colour exhibition catalogue available priced £24.99.
