Available now, exclusively on Platform: a limited-edition Silence=Death print, with proceeds benefiting Visual AIDS. Created by the Silence=Death Collective in 1986, this design was originally produced as a wheat pasting that peppered New York City in ′87 to raise awareness about the AIDS epidemic. The collective intentionally eschewed any photographic imagery, instead reclaiming the pink triangle assigned to LGBTQ+ prisoners in Nazi death camps set against a black background with “Silence=Death” printed across the bottom. It has since become a defining symbol of queer pride and resistance.⁣ Visual AIDS is deeply grateful to the Silence=Death Collective and David Zwirner for making us the beneficiary of this print edition.
