Globalization affects every aspect of life on this planet, including climate change, outsourced jobs, pollution, and wars. As ecological crises escalate, resources diminish, and distribution of wealth is increasingly skewed towards the richest 1%, activists and artists throughout the world are speaking with a clarity and coherence exceeding that of most politicians. Their graphic messages are loud and clear: value people over profits, free speech over free trade, and justice over inequality.
Produced from the archives of the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, in partnership with Otis College of Art and Design, Integrated Learning seminar "Designing the Political" led by Guy Bennett and Kerri Steinberg.
