Red Lines & Death Vows: Mortgage Politics in the 20th Century

Red Lines & Death Vows

These 9 posters were originally produced as lightboxes for Red Lines Housing Crisis Learning Center, an exhibition I designed about the politics of mortgages, held at the Queens Museum of Art in the summer of 2009.

The posters attempt to cover the basic facts shaping the American system of financing housing, a story of technological innovation, financial exploitation, social engineering, market power, racist hardwiring, and full of brave attempts by everyday people to strengthen the role democracy in the functioning of the economy.

Next, I’d like to put them in bus stops.
