Signs of Change is at once an art book, a political book and an inspiring collection of the striking imagery that plays a huge part in the promotion of radical ideas worldwide. Dara Greenwald and Josh MacPhee have chosen a broad collection of artwork that illustrates the different artistic facets of radical movements for social change. No other survey has previously mapped and traced the evolution of social justice through artistic motifs, while showing how these mediums of expression have influenced and mirrored one another around the world. With pieces from Argentina, India, Palestine, Germany and China among the 40 countries represented this is a book with truly international scope. A huge variety of struggle is represented here - from Act-UP against AIDS to the Intifada by way of Critical Mass bike rides and workers struggles through to the Zapatistas, political art is everywhere!
It’s a beautiful and inspiring collection that not only displays a wide range of work, but contextualizes it through an introductory essay by the editors, one an art historian, and one a social movement theorist. It also includes numerous short statements by the artists themselves.
