Edited by Alex Dunn and Josh MacPhee
This installment of the Signal series features artwork inspired by anarchist movements in Japan, U.S. promotional posters from the 1910s, Mexican street art, revolutionary murals from 1970s Portugal, and much more. The series is dedicated to documenting the compelling graphics, art projects, and cultural movements of international resistance and liberation struggles. Readers will be inspired by not only fine and graphic arts but also political posters, comics, magazines, documentation of performances, and articles on the often overlooked but essential role these works have played in struggles around the world. Art and politics come together in this unique blend of media from across the globe.
