"Sture Johannesson's psychedelic posters scandalised the progressive Swedish society of the sixties. His defense of psychotropic substances, used as a critique of State control, provoked censorship in both public and private institutions. For more than twenty years, his poster production served to denounce that the way in which society builds and transmits its patterns of authority is ultimately more hallucinatory than the effects of any drug" (https://www.macba.cat/en/art-artists/artists/johannesson-sture/aquarian-planetarium-day-and-night-i-am-you-copenhagen).
