Summary

Resist tells the story of art used as a form of rebellion, political protest and resistance.
 
This fully illustrated book brings together stories from throughout history to the present day to show the impact and importance of artistic dissent and opposition.
 
The artists featured differ in nationality, age, gender, race and circumstance but all use their work and voice to oppose abuse of power, social injustice and inequality.

With insightful text from art theorist Anny Shaw alongside stunning full page reproductions of the artworks and beautiful archive photography, this book is as visually attractive as it is thought-provoking, and also contains interviews with artists themselves on the impact of their work and their motivations for agitating against the status quo.

Arranged thematically, chapters cover
  • Censorship
  • Racial justice
  • Borders
  • War and the Arms Trade
  • Climate Crisis
  • LGBTQ Rights
  • Feminism 
Powerful, moving work by artists such as Picasso, Barbara Kruger, Guerrilla Girls, Dread Scott and Ai Weiwei demand attention, call for change and give us hope in the possibility to create a better world.
