Protest posters exhibited at V&A in 2014

A new exhibition showcases powerful protest posters from the past 100 years.

July 09, 2013, 2:46 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The V&A Museum has announced it will be holding an exhibition next year to celebrate the history of posters about protest. The exhibition will be called A World To Win: Posters Of Protest And Revolution and will open on 1 May 2014 – fittingly, as Mayday as traditionally an international day of protest. Visitors coming to London in 2014 should ensure they visit LondonTown.com to get the best deals on hotels in London. LondonTown.com uses the latest information to ensure you always get the best available price on rooms in the capital.

A World To Win promises to be an absorbing look at the powerful and dramatic imagery used in protest posters. From the ‘Votes for Women' Suffragette campaigns of the early 20th century to the recent Occupy movements, political activists around the world have always used posters to mobilise, educate and organise. Posters have featured in some of the most striking political protests of our age, such as the Paris revolt of May 1968 when students and striking workers covered the walls of the city with posters that often boasted striking imagery and provocative, memorable slogans.

Making or displaying a poster is in itself a means of taking political action, while for many social and political movements posters have represented an important form of cultural output. Themes of protest and political participation have gained a powerful contemporary resonance in the wake of the Arab Spring and the global financial crisis. This display looks at a century of posters agitating for political change drawn from the V&A collection, including new acquisitions gathered from recent outbursts of protest. The exhibition will be free of charge and runs until 2 November 2014. For more information about this and other exhibitions taking place in 2014 at the V&A, visit LondonTown.com, which is the best source for reliable information on tourist attractions in London.
