Organization: Gran Fury

Identifier: ORG.22
Description: Gran Fury was an activist/artist collective that came together in 1988. Referencing both the specific Plymouth model used by the New York Police Department and their anger about the government's response, or lack thereof, to the AIDS pandemic, Gran Fury acted as ACT UP's (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) unofficial propaganda ministry, creating work that used the same strategies as advertising to reach a wider audience.
