The Art of Protest is a visual journey across more than a century of social and political activism, a rich tapestry of posters created by artists as they have celebrated and supported campaigns for civil and human rights around the world. From the suffragettes of the early twentieth century to the upheaval 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. 

Showcasing more than a hundred posters, The Art of Protest covers key campaigns, global and local, including the refugee and climate crisis, women's empowerment, nuclear disarmament, LGBTQ activishm, Black Lives Matter, and issues around war and the misuse of the world's resources. These are images that have pushed the boundaries as they give voice to the marginalized and confront those who would deny people their rights to peace and equality.
