Formed from the title of the Department of Agitation and Propaganda founded in 1920 in Soviet Russia, Agit-prop was intended to control the ideological thinking of the masses. Agit-prop trains toured Russia with artists and actors performing plays, broadcasting propaganda, and distributing posters. In the West the term came to acquire a negative connotation equated with extreme left-wing politics.
