1915 – Abel FAIVRE

The PROPAGANDA exhibition presents posters from both world wars, of armed revolutionary movements and pacificist movements, by way of the atomic bomb, the League of Nations and UN peacekeepers, not forgetting refugee aid and disarmament.

Before 1914, propaganda posters were in general simple printed texts. Illustrated propaganda posters were rare.


The First World War necessitated the mobilization of the population at home to support the war effort and this triggered off an enormous production of propaganda posters.

Walls all over France, England and the United States were covered with posters in the support of the ‘Poilus’, the soldiers at the front. They also advertised the selling of war bonds and demonized the German enemy.

The army and its leaders quickly understood the communicative power of the poster and used it as a power tool in the service of their propaganda.

Numerous political groups found that the poster was a economical way of spreading their ideas.

THE MILITARY IN POSTERS

The end of the 19th century was a period of peace in Europe. It was a period of the great universal exhibitions and advertising posters. Not surprisingly, military subjects were not very present.

However, even posters representing exhibitions, spectacles, cigarette paper or even Genevan biscuits sometimes made references to war and made allusions to generals such as Napoleon and General Dufour.

FETES DE TIR - SWISS SHOOTING COMPETITIONS

In Switzerland each male citizen is a soldier. It is a militia army. To keep a high level of training, each citizen-soldier has to attend the shooting range each year. This is obligatory.

Shooting practice was regularly organized over the whole country to maintain the motivation of the population. The ‘Fêtes de Tir Fédéral’ of 1885 in Geneva or 1898 in Neuchâtel was very well attended. These competitions offered huge financial rewards for that time.

Great means were employed in order to promote these patriotic manifestations. These quality posters were designed by well known artists and printed using color lithography on good quality paper.

Switzerland is the only country to have produced such a large amount of military-sport posters.

WWI posters

Before 1914, political posters were, in general, simple printed texts. Illustrated political posters were rare.

1915 – Abel FAIVRE

During the First World War, the necessity to motivate the populace at home to support the war effort engendered an enormous production of propoganda posters.

The walls of France, England and America were covered with posters not only to support the men at the front, but also to sell huge loans and demonize the German enemy.

These graphically powerful posters would mark this period and influence graphic design after the war.

'Journees du poilu' posters


In support of the ‘poilus’, the mobilized soldiers fighting at the front, France organized huge events to collect funds.

Switzerland was spared the war, but its troops were nevertheless mobilized around its frontiers.

Diverse solidarity movements were founded to support the soldiers and their families and poster campaigns were launched.

The most well known poster is certainly that of Jules Courvoiser which represents a soldier returning home, having thrown his rucksack and gun on the floor and kissing his child. This poster, for the ‘National Fund for our soldiers and their Families’, was printed in thousands of examples, in 2 sizes and in 3 national languages.

NPCK POSTERS FOR THE SWISS ARMY

In Switzerland, the chocolate industry developed rapidly during the war. In fact the army loved this practical food which was rich in calories. The public readily sent lots of it to their soldiers.

For the Swiss National Exhibition at Berne in 1914, the chocolate manufacturers, Cailler, Peter and Kohler, sent a free bar of chocolate to each mobilized soldier.

In 1916 these companies edited a series of lithographies on the ‘MOB’, the mobilization of the Swiss army.

AUGUST 1ST, POSTERS FOR THE SWISS NATIONAL DAY

GENEVA THE 9TH NOVEMBER 1932 – THE ARMY SHOOTS DEMONSTRATORS

The 9th of November 1932, at 9.34pm, Swiss recruits opened fire on a crowd of demonstrators in Geneva - 13 dead and 65 injured.

9nov_1932.jpg

On the 5th of November, a small poster for the National Union was pasted around the streets of Geneva. Georges Oltramar, founder of the National Union, called on his followers to, ‘Put on trial Mrs Nicole and Dicker’. Leon Nicole and Jacques Dicker were both socialist deputies. Partisans were called to meet in the communal hall at Plainpalais.

The left and the far left immediately called for a counter-demonstration. The Genevan government was apprehensive and afraid of not being able to control the situation, Frédérique Martin, president of the cantonal government, called the army to help maintain order.

The order was given for a school of Lausanne recruits to come to Geneva. The young soldiers were told that a ‘revolution had broken out in Geneva’ and they received weapons of war. It was the beginning of a chain of events that, because of the inexperience of the recruits to keep order in crowd situations and the incompetence of the officers, would end in drama.

On the evening of the 9th of November while the partisans of Géo Oltramare were entrenched in the communal hall, the recruits were sent in single file into the middle of the demonstrators. The crowd asked some Swiss German speaking recruits, who, not understanding the development of events, to join them and shoot at their own officers. Some recruits were molested and disarmed. Their guns were broken and their helmets were split open on the ground.

Pressed against the wall of the Palais des Expositions, the officer in charge gave the order to fire one shot. In 13 seconds 137 shots were fired. Outcome, 13 dead and 65 injured.

Contre la Révolution, Electeur ! souviens-toi du 9 novembre, Vote pour Fr. Martin

1933 – Noel FONTANET


An historic poster to renew the election of Frédérique Martin to the ‘Conseil d’Etat’, (the Geneva senate), and who on the 9th of November called on the army for help.
To illustrate this poster, ‘Against the revolution…’, Noel Fontanet, a Genevan graphic designer, the most striking of the period and totally anti communist, represents demonstrators striking a poor disarmed soldier. Even though it had been established that no soldier had been seriously injured. His split helmet was exactly the same that had been photographed by Max Kettel such was the publicity in the press at that time.

Even today these events have been subject to diverse interpretation, depending on the political position. Nevertheless the fact is, the Swiss militia fired on its own population.

Its people had fired on its own people !

This tragic episode, revealed the economic and social climate that stemmed from the crisis and the exasperating tensions at the time between the right and the left. All this would have numerous electoral consequences and consequences for the army.

During the invasion of France in 1940 German troops captured 1,845,000 French prisoners of war. These were interned in camps called work camps.

In 1942 the Vichy government tried out a political manoeuver called ‘the relief’. Certain posters asked the French to voluntarily go and work in Germany in exchange for the liberation of French prisoners. So 250,000 French volunteers worked in Germany and 200,000 prisoners were ‘transformed’ into civil workers, even if they stayed in Germany.

Under the impetus of the Conseil Federal, the Federal poster prize was created in 1941 to help the Swiss economy, by covering its city walls with beautiful posters in order to boost moral.

Due to this decision, unique in the Occident, the Swiss graphic tradition persisted during the war years. Since 1945, the Swiss graphic industry was not only preserved but experienced a positive expansion which also helped to renew the economy.

The Wahlen Plan

Before the war, more than half of all foodstuff consumed in Switzerland was imported. From 1945 Friedrich Traugott Wahlen, agronomist and Swiss politician, perfected a plan to make the country self efficient in foodstuff in case of an eventual embargo.

In 1940 Switzerland was encircled by the Axis forces and the ‘Wahlen plan’, or the ‘battle of the fields’ was put into action.

Jeunes gens! Votre relève ! Engagez-vous pour la bataille des champs

1943 – Noel FONTANET

CHF 990.–

This plan consisted in lowering the production of meat and to concentrate on the production of potatoes, fruit and vegetables. All vacant fields were transformed into agricultural land including certain parks and sports grounds in the bigger cities. Hence the agricultural land was doubled.The population which was not mobilized - women, school children and the elderly, were invited to work in the fields to ensure the self sufficiency of the country.

Even if the need to be self sufficient was not total as importation had never completely stopped, the plan was a success.

Switzerland was the only country in Europe to be totally provided for in fruit, vegetables and potatoes of which the production had doubled.

This productivist and patriotic surge strengthened the country in adversity and became a myth of the culture of resistance and independence of the Swiss people.
