Ersatz Affiches brings together the work of Barbara Bloom, Ernst Caramelle, Anna Craycroft, Simryn Gill, and Matt Mullican to ruminate on how we read images in popular media and the knowledge systems they create. As the "ersatz" of the title indicates, an element of trickery is at play. Through subversion and inversion, the conventions of formats like posters, magazines, and coffee table picture books are highlighted.
