The Protest BoxThe Protest Box

Published by Steidl.
Edited by Marin Parr.

Martin Parr's collection of photobooks is one of the finest to have ever been assembled and The Protest Box is a boxset which brings together five books from that collection as facsimile reprints. Parr has selected diverse books which each deal with the subject of protest in quite different ways. From the documentation of various protest movements to the actual book being a form of protest, all these reprints are gems within the history of photographic publishing. A few are known but many are new, even to the connoisseur of photography books. All these books are virtually impossible to locate, so these reprints will make a substantial contribution to our understanding of this sub-genre of the photobook. The box set is accompanied by a booklet which includes an introduction by Martin Parr, an essay discussing the wider context of these books by Gerry Badger, and English translations of all the texts in the books. Enrique Bostelmann América: un Viaje a traves de la injusticaFirst published in 1970 by Siglo I Editores, Mexico City; Bostelmann, a Mexican photographer, journeyed through Latin America looking for examples of injustice, such as the exploitation of indigenous Indians who were forced into factories and menial jobs. Paolo Gasparini Para verte major, América LatinaFirst published in 1972 by Siglo I Editores, Mexico City; Gasparini, an Italian born photographer who has lived in Caracas most of his life, traversed Latin America to document the contrast between communism and capitalism. The book also documents and uses graffiti and graphics to emphasis his polemic. Dirk Alvermann AlgeriaFirst published in 1961 in Berlin, GDR; Alvermann, a photographer originally born in West Germany, published his book about both sides of the Algerian conflict in East Berlin. The radical design was inspired by Russian film stills. Kitai Kazuo SanrizukaFirst published in 1971 by Nora-Sha, Tokyo; a classic protest book which shows the huge popular uprising inspired by the proposed building of Narita airport. Paolo Mattioli and Anna Candiani Immagini del NoFirst published in 1974 by Occhio Magico No 11, Milan; this small format book documented various protests in Italy, from the Feminist Movement to Anti-Fascism marches.

Provoke: Between Protest and PerformanceProvoke: Between Protest and Performance

Photography in Japan 1960–1975

Published by Steidl.
Edited by Matthew Witkovsky, Diane Dufour, Duncan Forbes, Walter Moser. Text by Yukio Lippit, Yuri Mitsuda. Interviews by Araki Nobuyoshi, Daido Moriyama, Eikoh Hosoe, Ryuichi Kaneko.

The short-lived Japanese magazine Provoke, founded in 1968, is nowadays recognized as a major contribution to postwar photography in Japan, featuring the country’s finest representatives of protest photography, vanguard fine art and critical theory in only three issues overall. The magazine's goal was to mirror the complexities of Japanese society and its art world of the 1960s, a decade shaped by the country’s first large-scale student protests. The movement yielded a wave of new books featuring innovative graphic design combined with photography: serialized imagery, gripping text-image combinations, dynamic cropping and the use of provocatively "poor" materials. The writings and images by Provoke's members—critic Koji Taki, poet Takahiko Okada, photographers Takuma Nakahira, Yakata Takanashi and Daido Moriyama—were suffused with the tactics developed by Japanese protest photographers such as Nobuyoshi Araki, Eikoh Hosoe and Shomei Tomatsu, who pointed at and criticized the mythologies of modern life. Provoke accompanies the first exhibition ever to be held on the magazine and its creators. Illuminating the various uses of photography in Japan at the time, the catalogue focuses on selected projects undertaken between 1960 and 1975 that offer a strongly interpretative account of currents in Japanese art and society at a moment of historical collapse and renewal.

Feminist Posters 1974–1990

Published by Four Corners Books.
Foreword by Sheila Rowbotham. Text by Prudence Stevenson, Susan Mackie, Anne Robinson, Jess Baines.

"Girls are powerful": the ‘70s feminist posters of See Red Women’s Workshop
A feminist silkscreen poster collective founded in London in 1974 by three former art students, the See Red Women’s Workshop grew out of a shared desire to combat sexist images of women and to create positive and challenging alternatives. Women from different backgrounds came together to make posters and calendars that tackled issues of sexuality, identity and oppression. With humor and bold, colorful graphics, See Red expressed the personal experiences of women as well as their role in wider struggles for change.
Written by See Red members, detailing the group’s history up until the closure of the workshop in 1990, and with a foreword by celebrated feminist historian Sheila Rowbotham, See Red Women’s Workshop features all of the collective’s original screenprints and posters. Confronting negative stereotypes, questioning the role of women in society, and promoting women’s self-determination, the power and energy of these images reflect an important and dynamic era of women’s liberation—with continued relevance for today.

Rebels Rebel: AIDS, Art and Activism in New York, 1979-1989Rebels Rebel: AIDS, Art and Activism in New York, 1979-1989

Published by AsaMER.
Text by Tommaso Speretta. Afterword by Loring McAlpin.

Rebels Rebel looks at the history of AIDS activism undertaken by various artistic collectives in New York between 1979 and 1989. Among these once-controversial, now-legendary collectives were Gran Fury (who scandalized the 1990 Venice Biennale with their billboards juxtaposing the pope and his anti-contraception stance with a two-foot high penis), the Silence = Death Project (who appropriated and inverted the Nazis' pink triangle), Gang and DIVA TV. These collectives addressed concrete social problems using unconventional media, and in doing so helped to shift the public and political perception of the AIDS crisis. Collating a wealth of materials and perspectives, from graphic design to art works, and from sociopolitical to art-historical reflections, Rebel Rebels is an important and thorough examination of a rare overlap between art and activism during a time of heightened conservativism in America. It includes a full-color poster.

Mark Peterson: Political TheatreMark Peterson: Political Theatre

Published by Steidl.

Over the past two years New York–based Mark Peterson (born 1955) has photographed American presidential candidates as they lead rallies, meet with the public and plead for votes. He began documenting the race shortly before the government shutdown in 2013 at a Tea Party rally at the US Capitol, when politicians were railing against President Obama and the Affordable Care Act. Since then Peterson has followed the political spin as it approaches the November 2016 election, creating already-famous images of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Sarah Palin, Chris Christie and others, cutting through the staging of their personalities and revealing the cold, naked ambition for power. This volume documents what has been widely described as the most polarized and bizarre presidential race in American history.
Mark Peterson's work has been published in The New York Times Magazine, New York, Fortune, Time, ESPN The Magazine and Geo, among many others. His numerous awards include a W. Eugene Smith support grant. Peterson’s book Acts of Charity was published in 2004 by Powerhouse Books.

Revolution: Russian Art 1917–1932Revolution: Russian Art 1917–1932

Published by Royal Academy Publications.
Text by John Milner, Natalia Murray, Nick Murray, Masha Chlenova, Ian Christie, John E. Bowlt, Nicoletta Misler, Zelfira Tregulova, Faina Balakhovskaya, Evgenia Petrova, Christina Lodder.

One hundred years after the Russian Revolution, this comprehensive survey explores all aspects of its groundbreaking art
One hundred years after the Russian Revolution, Revolution: Russian Art, 1917–1932 explores one of the most momentous periods in modern world history through its groundbreaking art. The October Revolution of 1917 ended centuries of Tsarist rule and left artists such as Malevich, Tatlin, Popova and Rodchenko urgently debating what form a new “people’s art” would take.
Painting and sculpture were redefined by Kandinsky’s boldly innovative compositions, Malevich’s dynamic abstractions and the Constructivists’ attempts to transform art into technical engineering. Photography, architecture, film and graphic design also experienced revolutionary changes. These debates were definitively settled in 1932, when Stalin began to suppress the avant-garde in favor of Socialist Realism—collective in production, public in manifestation and Communist in ideology.
Based around a remarkable exhibition shown in Leningrad’s State Russian Museum in 1932—which was to be the swansong of avant-garde art in Russia—this volume explores that revolutionary 15-year period between 1917 and 1932 when possibilities seemed limitless and Russian art flourished across every medium. Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London (the first to attempt to survey the entire artistic landscape of post-Revolutionary Russia), Revolution explores the painting, sculpture, photography, film, poster art and product design of the years after the Russian Revolution.
Including contributions from some of the most prominent scholars in the field (John Milner, Natalia Murray, Nick Murray, Masha Chlenova, Ian Christie, John E. Bowlt, Nicoletta Misler, Zelfira Tregulova, Faina Balakhovskaya, Evgenia Petrova and Christina Lodder), Revolution is a timely and authoritative exploration of both the idealistic aspirations and the harsh realities of the Russian Revolution and its aftermath.

Art & Activism in the Age of GlobalizationArt & Activism in the Age of Globalization

Reflect No. 8

Published by nai010 publishers.
Edited by Ruben De Roo, Karel Vanhaesebrouck, Lieven de Cautier.

What roles can art and activism play in a post-Fordist "society of the spectacle"? Can activist art effect real change? Art & Activism in the Age of Globalization asks these and other pressing questions facing contemporary activist art, through case studies by established artists and filmmakers such as Steven Cohen and Christoph Schlingensief, as well as emerging voices such as Renzo Martens and Les Chiens de Navarre. It investigates issues of urban activism and the activism of anonymous networks, giving special consideration to the effects of the War on Terror upon the activist agenda. In our era of unchecked globalization and the extreme crisis of global warming, this indispensable reader concludes by proposing a theoretical scaffolding for modern-day activism, making a passionate appeal for a truly political art.
