about this item

Signal is an ongoing book series dedicated to documenting and sharing compelling graphics, art projects, and cultural movements of international resistance and liberation struggles. Artists and cultural workers have been at the center of upheavals and revolts the world over, from the painters and poets in the Paris Commune to the poster-makers and street-theatre performers of the Occupy movement. Signal brings these artists and their work to a new audience, digging deep through our common history to unearth their images and stories. In the U.S. there is a tendency to focus only on the artworks produced within our shores or from English-speaking producers. Signal reaches beyond those bounds, bringing material produced the world over, translated from dozens of languages and collected from both the present and decades past. Although a full-color printed publication, Signal is not limited to the graphic arts. Within its pages you will find political posters and fine arts, comics and murals, street art, site-specific works, zines, art collectives, documentation of performances, and articles on the often-overlooked but essential roles all of these have played in struggles around the world. Highlights of the fifth volume of Signal include: Printing During the Dictatorship: The Club de Grabado de Montevideo by Georgia Phillips-Amos The Flower of the Partisan: Italian Songs of Resistance by Josh MacPhee Design vs. Displacement: Fighting Eviction with the PAH in Barcelona by Marc Herbst Conceptualizing Capitalism: The Class Pyramid as a Graphic Tool by Eric Triantafillou New Print Collectives in Japan, Malaysia, and the United States: Interviews by Alec Dunn Come!Unity Press: An Oral History of a ****** ****** Printshop Collective in 1970s New York by Paul Werner Street Art and Solidarity: The Work of Rigo 23 by Erick Lyle Art and Liberation: Cultural Struggle in the Sahara by Tennessee Watson
