Make Art Not War: Political Protest Posters from the Twentieth Century

An extraordinarily visceral collection of posters that represent the progressive protest movements of the twentieth Century. Two of the most recognizable images of twentieth-century art are Pablo Picasso’s “Guernica” and the rather modest mass-produced poster by an unassuming illustrator, Lorraine Schneider “War is Not Healthy for Children and Other Living Things.

From picasso’s masterpiece to a humble piece of poster art, artists have used their talents to express dissent and to protest against injustice and immorality. As the face of many political movements, posters are essential for fueling recruitment, spreading propaganda, and sustaining morale. Disseminated by governments, political parties, labor unions and other organizations, political posters transcend time and span the entire spectrum of political affiliations and philosophies.

Drawing on the celebrated collection in the tamiment library’s poster and broadside Collection at New York University, the Vietnam War, LGBT rights, civil rights, Ralph Young has compiled an extraordinarily visceral collection of posters that represent the progressive protest movements of the twentieth Century:  labor, feminism and other minority rights.

Make art not war can be enjoyed on aesthetic grounds alone, and also offers fascinating and revealing insights into twentieth century cultural, social and political history.

Posters for Peace: Visual Rhetoric and Civic Action

Some politicians—including ronald Reagan, Spiro Agnew, and Richard Nixon—exploited the situation to cultivate anger against students. Posters for peace tells the story of those posters, bringing to life their rhetorical iconography and restoring them to their place in the history of poster art and political street art.

By the spring of 1970, americans were frustrated by continuing war in Vietnam and turmoil in the inner cities. Thomas benson shows that the student posters from Berkeley appealed to core patriotic values and to the legitimacy of democratic deliberation in a democracy—even in a time of war. The posters are vivid, ironic, simple, direct, and often graphically beautiful.

At the university of california at Berkeley, along with many sympathetic faculty, student leaders devoted themselves, to studying the war and working for peace. Students on american college campuses opposed the war in growing numbers and joined with other citizens in ever-larger public demonstrations against the war.

A group of art students designed, produced, and freely distributed thousands of antiwar posters.

Seeing Power: Art and Activism in the Twenty-first Century

Where even our friends suddenly seem to be selling us the ultimate product: themselves. Perhaps as never before. In our chaotic world of co-opted imagery, television, does art still have power?A fog of images and information permeates the world nowadays: from advertising, radio, and film to the glut produced by the new economy and the rise of social media .

From cooperative housing to anarchist infoshops to alternative art venues, Seeing Power reveals ways that art today can and does inspire innovation and dramatic transformation. How can anyone find a voice and make change in a world flooded with such pseudo-art? how are we supposed to discern what’s true in the product emanating from the ceaseless machine of consumer capitalism, and now from the methods of grassroots political organizing and even social networking? Thompson’s invigorating answers to those questions highlights the work of some of the most innovative and interesting artists and activists working today, a machine that appropriates from art history, as well as institutions that empower their communities to see power and reimagine it.

Here, nato thompson—one of the country’s most celebrated young curators and critics—investigates what this deluge means for those dedicated to socially engaged art and activism. Used book in Good Condition.

Dissent: The History of an American Idea

Some dissenters are celebrated heroes of American history, while others are ordinary people: frequently overlooked, but whose stories show that change is often accomplished through grassroots activism. The united states is a nation founded on the promise and power of dissent. When the promise of those ideals was not fully realized by all Americans, many protested and demanded that the United States live up to its promise.

In this stunningly comprehensive volume, Ralph Young shows us its history. Teaching resources from temple university: sample Course Syllabus Teaching Resources from C-Span Classroom Teaching Resources from Temple University Used book in Good Condition. Finalist, 2016 ralph waldo emerson award   one of bustle's books for your Civil Disobedience Reading List    Dissent: The History of an American Idea examines the key role dissent has played in shaping the United States.

Women fought for equal rights; abolitionists sought to destroy slavery; workers organized unions; Indians resisted white encroachment on their land; radicals angrily demanded an end to the dominance of the moneyed interests; civil rights protestors marched to end segregation; antiwar activists took to the streets to protest the nation’s wars; and reactionaries, and traditionalists in each decade struggled to turn back the clock to a simpler, conservatives, more secure time.

It focuses on those who, dissented against the ruling paradigm of their time: from the Puritan Anne Hutchinson and Native American chief Powhatan in the seventeenth century, from colonial days to the present, to the Occupy and Tea Party movements in the twenty-first century. The emphasis is on the way americans, celebrated figures and anonymous ordinary citizens, responded to what they saw as the injustices that prevented them from fully experiencing their vision of America.

At its founding the United States committed itself to lofty ideals.
