Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics 2008 – 2018 at The Design Museum
The Design Museum’s latest exhibition has just opened, and it’s just the ticket for banishing those post-Bank Holiday blues. Get inspired by the colourful representations of politics and public engagement at this exhibition dedicated to protests in pictures.
It has been a decade of unrest, from the credit crunch of 2008 to Brexit and Trump, to the Arab Spring and refugee crisis. Visitors will discover how graphic design has played a crucial role in dictating and reacting to these major political moments of our times. Discover how an extraordinary proliferation of graphic messages surfaced as a result, from good old-fashioned political posters and protest placards to internet memes – people are more politically engaged than ever, and this exhibition will certainly inspire you to get involved.
When & Where?
‘Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics 2008 – 2018’ will be at The Design Museum until 12 August, so you have plenty of time to plan your visit. The exhibition is set to be a big success, so why not head down today and avoid the crowds?
The Design Museum, 224-238 Kensington High St, London W8 6AG
