Take a look at the new Human Rights Foundation digital collection of protest art from around the world. Here is their introduction:
Street protests, which were the defining feature of civil and political resistance in 2019, still prevailed in 2020, even as the novel coronavirus spread from Wuhan, China to the rest of the globe. The pandemic further exposed the failures of authoritarian regimes — which were more interested in exploiting the pandemic for power grabs than protecting the lives of their citizens. Braving COVID-19 restrictions and repression, people still took to the streets to make their voices heard.
In any struggle for social or political change, art has been a powerful medium of protest and creative expression to expose the deception and social bankruptcy of tyranny. This selection of protest art, curated by HRF’s Art in Protest program, reminds us of just that. Scroll down to see moving works of protest art by artists who committed their talent in 2020 to push for change across 15 countries ruled by authoritarian regimes.
