Ongoing Matter is a collection of poster designs developed by 11 designers across the United States intended to increase access to, and facilitate engagement with, the Report On the Investigation Into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election, more colloquially known as The Mueller Report. The exhibition follows a long history of posters as a medium for empowering citizens at crucial, societal, political, and cultural moments in time. As a non-partisan undertaking, an overarching goal of the designers is to help educate and inspire activism, regardless of political ideology affiliation.
