            An authoritative, richly illustrated history of six centuries of global protest art Throughout history, artists and citizens have turned to protest art as a means of demonstrating social and political discontent. From the earliest broadsheets in the 1500s to engravings, photolith...ographs, prints, posters, murals, graffiti, and political cartoons, these endlessly inventive graphic forms have symbolized and spurred on power struggles, rebellions, spirited causes, and calls to arms. Spanning continents and centuries, Protest! presents a major new chronological look at protest graphics and shows how these images have been shaped by international events as well as advances in technology. Beginning in the Reformation, when printed visual matter was first produced in multiples, Liz McQuiston follows the iconic images that have accompanied movements and events around the world. McQuiston examines fine art and propaganda, including William HogarthaEURO (TM)s Gin Lane, Thomas NastaEURO (TM)s political caricatures, French and British comics, postcards from the womenaEURO (TM)s suffrage movement, clothing of the 1960s counterculture, the anti-apartheid illustrated book How to Commit Suicide in South Africa, the aEURO Silence=DeathaEURO emblem from the AIDS crisis, murals created during the Arab Spring, electronic graphics from Hong KongaEURO (TM)s Umbrella Revolution, and the front cover of the magazine Charlie Hebdo. Providing a visual exploration both joyful and brutal, McQuiston discusses how graphics have protested wars, called for the end to racial discrimination, demanded freedom from tyranny, and satirized authority figures and regimes. From the French, Mexican, and Sandanista Revolutions to the American civil rights movement, nuclear disarmament, and the WomenaEURO (TM)s March of 2017, Protest! documents the integral role of the visual arts in passionate efforts for change.
