Short Desription

Based on a September 2008 exhibit at Exit Art gallery in New York City, Signs of Change surveys the art and cultural production of global social movements from the 1960s to the present. From the rise of the reproducible poster to today’s digital instantaneity, it tackles the themes and representation of inter national struggles for equality, democracy, and freedom—as well as basic human rights, like food and shelter. In an impressive compilation of over three hundred posters, prints, photographs, films, songs, and other ephemera from over twenty countries, this forty-year retrospective assembles together work that has rarely been exhibited in order to illustrate the incredible aesthetic range employed by radical movements. No other survey has so extensively mapped the evolution of social justice through artistic motifs and mediums of expression while providing a theoretical and historical account of how they circulate the globe, influencing and mirroring one another in complex ways. This book will be important to contemporary artists and activists, providing a dialogue with the past and creating an important context for the cultural work of the future.

Dara Greenwald is a media artist, organizer, and writer pursuing a PhD at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Her writing has appeared in Punk Planet, The Brooklyn Rail, The Journal of Aesthetics and Protest, and Realizing the Impossible: Art Against Authority.

Josh MacPhee is an artist, curator, and activist. He is the co-editor of Realizing the Impossible: Art Against Authority and Reproduce and Revolt: A Graphic Toolbox for the 21st Century Activist.
