The art of protest

Rippon, Jo; Amnesty International, associated with work

Against an increasingly polarising 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
