People's Secret History is a group art show comprised of informational posters. A complement to the popular poster series by the Just Seeds Artists' Cooperative. 

While much radical history has benefited from some social and academic focus there are still many stories left untold. History, as a subjective science, is indeed a site of trauma as much as it is glory or cultural advancement. Obscured histories when rarely acknowledged fester with paranoid attentions. We are interested in exploring how some experiences are forced into hiding not only by the state apparatus at large but also intimately by a socially sanctioned understanding of logic. So much so that they are often even denied their place in a revisionist radical history. When we use the word conspiracy in regards to these secret histories it is uttered derogatorily. What would it mean to display these threatening histories as though they were weighted with legitimacy? How do these stories change when pushed into realms of design and consumable iconography?
