Signs of Revolt: Creative resistance and social movements since Seattle

Issue No. 2177

In November 1999 an alliance of direct action activists, environmentalists and trade unionists shut down a meeting of the World Trade Organisation in Seattle. In the process they sparked a global movement.

Signs of Revolt is an exhibition that weaves together the story of the past decade, drawing out the connections between the movements against capitalism, war and climate change.

Using archive material and documentary photography and video, it reveals the story of how we got from Seattle to next month’s protests at the climate summit.

This is the first time such a collection has been brought together in Britain and it will be a chance to celebrate the new creative impulses that the movements spawned.

See work by Jody Boehnart, Noel Douglas, David Gentlemen, Jess Hurd, and Peter Kennard and Cat Picton Phillips.
