Cortez, Das Bergische Gasthaus , 1995

Wonderful Linocut by Carlos Cortez.

Carlos Cortez was an extraordinary artist, poet, printmaker, photographer, songwriter and lifelong political activist. This poster depicts a group of men playing cards and smoking with the caption, in german, reading "Bergische, the Guest house". Cortez was half Mexican-Indian and half German. Through his prints, he identifies more with the Mexican cultural background, though sometimes, he brings out his inner Deutsch.
