The Design of Dissent at Non-Breaking Space

Last week design practice Civilization opened its new gallery Non-Breaking Space, a non-profit gallery devoted to showcasing important works of graphic design. The first exhibit is The Design of Dissent and was co-curated with Milton Glaser and Mirko Ilic.

The Design of Dissent show includes over 50 graphic works of social and political protest and critique spanning the last fifty years addressing war, racism, human rights, poverty, environmental protection, gun control, and corporate greed around the world. The show overviews from the 60's until today, created by over 50 prominent designers from around the world.

The Design of Dissent was originally shown in 2005 when Milton Glaser and Mirko Ilic released The Design of Dissent book. Now they have 'passed the torch' to Civilization to curate a new iteration that not only fills the gap between 2005 til present-day but also fills in historical gaps that give better context to the current state of affairs.
