The Art of Protest : A Visual History of Dissent and Resistance
by Jo Rippon




Overview -
Presented in collaboration with Amnesty International, this stunning collection of more than a hundred posters charts a visual journey across more than a century of political and social activism.

From the suffragettes of the early twentieth century to the upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s to contemporary, social-media-driven demonstrations of dissent and resistance, this illustrative history features iconic art from the archives of Amnesty International, work by world-renowned artists, and spontaneous posters from short-lived print collectives and activists on the ground..

With a foreword by celebrated artist and activist Anish Kapoor, The Art of Protest covers key campaigns, global and local, including the refugee and climate crises, women's empowerment, nuclear disarmament, LGBTQ activism, Black Lives Matter, and issues around war and the misuse of the world's resources. These are images that have pushed boundaries as they give voice to the marginalized and confront those who would deny people their rights to peace and equality.
