LIDS’ DO MORE WITH MORE/DO LESS WITH LESS poster is featured on the cover and as a pull-out poster in Issue 37-1 of Fuse Magazine. The Ladies’ Invitational Deadbeat Society’s limited edition DO LESS WITH LESS / DO MORE WITH MORE cross-stitch-pattern poster was printed at the Alberta Printmakers’ Society in June 2012. The slogan on the posters was inspired by a discussion that took place as part of Artivistic’s Promiscuous Infrastructures project at Centre des arts actuels Skol in Montreal, about how artists and non-profit arts organizations negotiate the constant pressure to do more with less. With this poster reissue for FUSE, LIDS proposes that we resist the capitalist logic of constant acceleration, productivity and austerity budgets by reasserting a realistic level of production within our means. Use LIDS’s handy pullout pattern to stitch a banner for your own office and hang in the orientation of your choice!
