The Design of Dissent

Mirko Ilic

Graphics “can move people to action, to acts of courage and sacrifice, overcoming habit and fear. Art can do that; art is always having those sorts of effects. Art cant change anything except people- but art changes people, and people can make everything change.”

“these posters, these work of art have a restorative power. Each is an argument that stamps itself indelibly in on the soul of the passer-by; accepted or rejected, the argument, the claim, or demand each makes becomes a spark in the dialectical engine of consciousness, of human life.”

George W. Bush points a gun to his head in a chair. This piece was found in London, England

this is the peace they bring.
