Explore the power of posters at A World to Win: Posters of Protest and Revolution at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The engaging exhibition examines the way that posters have changed the world, from the Votes for Women campaigns early last century to more recent Occupy movements.
Political activists worldwide have used the humble poster to mobilise, educate and organise fellow citizens, ensuring that the act of just making or displaying a poster is a political statement in itself.
Representing an important form of cultural expression, the featured posters are based on themes of protest and political participation. With some brilliant examples on display, the work here spans a whole century of posters taken from the vast V&A archive, including some new acquisitions that are a thoughtful reminder of the power of clever design.
