Propaganda Poster Art Centre
The Propaganda Poster Art Centre is a museum located in Shanghai which exhibits posters from the Maoist period of communist China, especially from the Cultural Revolution period. The museum is located in the basement of an apartment building in Huashan Road facing Wukang Road, in the former French Concession area. It consists of only two rooms, however with a rich collection of rare last-piece posters. Due to the controversial nature of the historical items stored here, the museum is quite difficult to find, and unlabeled from the outside.
The owner of the museum, Mr. Yang Pei Ming, is keeping the posters as they are to be seen as an art form. He started collecting the posters as a hobby, and he wants to preserve the posters for the future. The museum is visited mainly by tourists, as it is listed in guides such as Lonely Planet and Frommers.
