Against an increasingly polarizing political backdrop, The Art of Protest takes a visual journey through over a hundred years of social protest. From the early twentieth century suffragettes through to the 1960s and 1970s – considered by many the heyday of uprisings – and contemporary, social media-driven demonstrations of dissent, this illustrative history features iconic posters from world-renowned artists, including notable posters from the archives of Amnesty International, as well as more spontaneous ephemera from short-lived print collectives and street activists. With a foreword from celebrated artist and activist, Anish Kapoor, The Art of Protest showcases more than 100 posters. It covers key campaigns such as women’s liberation, nuclear disarmament, the civil rights movement, climate change, AIDS activism, and Black Lives Matter, revealing artists who have pushed boundaries, given voice to the marginalised, and railed against those who seek to deny people their rights to peace and equality.
Produced in collaboration with Amnesty International. Includes access to their art archives and a global supporter base of more than 7 million, with members, supporters and activists in over 150 countries, and offices in 68 countries.
