Hardback. 176 pages. Size: 29cm x 24.8cm.

Description

Details

Featuring a foreword from celebrated artist and activist Anish Kapoor, this illustrative history covers key campaigns such as women’s liberation, nuclear disarmament, civil rights, the climate crisis, refugee rights, and LGBTQ activism. It showcases iconic posters from world-renowned artists, including from the archives of Amnesty International, as well as spontaneous artworks from short-lived print collectives and activists on the ground. Each poster is accompanied by a short text that explains its context and explores how creative defiance can push boundaries and challenge those who seek to deny people their rights to peace and equality.

“This book is a brilliant and eclectic collection of protest art created by people seeking to change the world.” Amnesty International

“The images in this book are a compendium of the will to a voice. Collectively they declare a refusal to be looked at or judged from the outside.” Anish Kapoor
