Black Mask (anarchists)

Black Mask was a radical anarchist art collective operating in New York City in the 1960s. They gained notoriety for their self-titled broadsheet as well as their public actions and demonstrations. The Black Mask was together from 1967 to late 1968 before reforming as Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers. They were loosely associated with the Situationist International, King Mob, and the Diggers. Their chief goal was the integration of art into the political program of anarchist revolution.

Black Mask disrupted cultural events in New York by giving made up flyers of art events to the homeless with the lure of free drinks.[1]
