War on Truth
Where Art + Activism Intersect
On the Power of Art
As graphic designer Bonnie Siegler writes in Signs of Resistance, protest art involves weapons, typically the only ones its creators have at their disposal: pen and paper.
Siegler’s book, a catalogue of protest art from the American Revolution to the Vietnam War, inspired TPF’s “War on Truth” campaign, for which I reimagined classic political posters to illustrate the prevalence and dangers of fake news. As we hung the posters all over the city, people began tagging us on Instagram. In a culture saturated with images, visual media speaks in a way neither text nor speech alone can. Protest art doesn't hang in museums; instead, it is clutched by angry fists or pasted on urban walls, speaking directly to passersby, prompting them to pause and question the status quo."
