‘Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics 2008 –18’ shows how graphic design not only responds to political events, but can also challenge and even shape them. From 
the Great Recession of 2008, the Deepwater Horizon
BP oil spill and the terrorist attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, to the Brexit referendum
and the 2016 US presidential election that shocked
the world, ‘Hope to Nope’ explores the role of graphic design in one of the most politically turbulent decades
in recent history. As traditional media rubs shoulders with the hashtag
and the meme, the influence and impact of graphic design has never been greater or more international in its reach. North Korean propaganda, fake posts disseminated
by Russian troll farms, a human billboard campaign against sexual harassment in China and anti-Zuma rallies from South Africa reflect how graphic design gives voice to political hopes and fears around the world. Alongside interviews with celebrated graphic designer Milton Glaser and street artist Shepard Fairey, the international designers and artists featured in this book include: Rebecca Wright and Lucienne Roberts, as well as a interviews with celebrated graphic designers Milton Glaser and Shepard Fairey Buy tickets to the Hope to Nope exhibition

Slogans (2017) by Oddly Head (aka Tim Fishlock) is the latest addition to a growing body of work that deftly skewers personal and social mores prevalent in today’s fraught state of affairs In the artist’s own words, "We’re living in an epoch of demagoguery and debacle. As a result, there is a process of inner migration, an opting out of reality. As a species, we’re running 21st-century software on hardware that hasn’t been updated for 50,000 years and we’re not coping at all well. Have we ever been so vulnerable and so self-absorbed? Against this backdrop, my work is an investigation but also an admission of my own fallibility." Acrylic gouache on board 3D effect yellow text on a red backdrop with a thick white border Special edition of 50, produced for the Design Museum Signed by the artist Buy tickets to the Hope to Nope exhibition

The Umbrella Revolution, also known as the Umbrella Movements, was a series of sit-in street protests that took place in Hong Kong between 26 September and 15 December 2014. The protests began after the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPCSC) issued a decision regarding proposed reforms to the Hong Kong electoral system. The decision was seen to be highly restrictive, and tantamount to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s pre-screening of the candidates for the leader of Hong Kong Buy tickets to the Hope to Nope exhibition

ME & EU is a collection of postcards written and designed by UK-based creatives and sent across Europe as a means to reconnect the United Kingdom with the EU in the wake of Brexit The weeks following the referendum brought a global sense of division and disconnect as people evaluated their response and as voters of both ‘remain’ and ‘leave’ imagined the possibilities of a post-EU Britain. ME & EU is one such response At a time of introspection, ME & EU aspired to look outwards, to reach beyond island shores and reconnect The ME & EU postcards provided an intimate medium for individuals wishing to remain in touch to express their message visually: many are quiet, personal, and heartfelt, others are dissenting and defiant. Together they form a powerful and passionate voice with an underpinning spirit of humour and positivity Buy tickets to the Hope to Nope exhibition

The Corbyn Comic Book

£4.99

Quantity
A collection of comic-strips on the subject of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn that express the inspiration and hope which Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party has bought to mainstream British politics Pollsters called it a foregone conclusion. Columnists said Theresa May’s snap general election wouldn’t just return her a thumping majority in the House of Commons – it would plunge the Opposition into existential crisis For Labour MPs, concerns about job security in an age of zero-hours contracts suddenly felt uncomfortably close to home. And then something happened. Momentum got to work. Grime4Corbyn gathered steam. Clicktivists became door‑knocking, flag-waving activists. Jezza talked jam on The One Show and opened for The Libertines at Prenton Park. All this while Theresa turned into the Maybot and the Conservatives released a manifesto that looked bad for people and even worse for animals Islington-dwelling socialist, bike-riding pacifist, green-fingered threat to the status quo: this revolutionary anthology captures the qualities and quirks of the Daily Mail's worst nightmare Buy tickets to the Hope to Nope exhibition

Olympe de Gouges was the most important fighter for women's rights you've never heard of. An activist and writer in revolutionary Paris, she published 'The Declaration of the Rights of Women' in 1791, and was beheaded two years later, her articulate demands for equality proving too much for their time Over one hundred and fifty years later, the key statements of her declaration were internationally endorsed by the United Nations in its Declaration on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women, which in turn went on to be legally recognised by nearly every country in the world This volume presents both of these key texts along with enlightening and inspiring commentary from a host of powerful women, from Virginia Woolf to Hillary Clinton Buy tickets to the Hope to Nope exhibition
