Overview

Revolutionary art from around the world

Dedicated to documenting the compelling graphics, art projects, and cultural movements of international resistance and liberation struggles, this unique resource serves as an active discussion of the role of art in revolution. Introducing the artists and cultural workers who have been at the center of upheavals and revolts, this work expands beyond graphic arts and includes political posters, comics, murals, zines, and features works from both present and past—from political freight train graffiti to subversive photo montages in 1980s San Francisco.

Reviews

"Clocking in at just under 140 glossy pages, Dunn and MacPhee do an impressive job of conveying not only what is new and relevant in political art, but also its history and its presence in the everyday." —dotrad.com

"As a series, this is going to be a great resource. Dunn and MacPhee are filling a void in terms of political graphics; there’s a lot of material for them to cover and this is solid start." —printeresting.org
