The exhibition of the printed materials displays the ways Yugoslav political and cultural entities communicated with the public opinion, the ways they expressed their political positions and advertized the cultural and other events in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. This special kind of documents show very vividly that political parties used every means to present their results accomplished and their ideas in a clear, visualized, suggestive and declarative "language", with scetches, graphics, statistics, even folk and traditional poems. Political posters usually conveyed messages directed to the potential voters and consumers of the cultural events, to all social classes, workers or peasants.
