Artists & Politics

Volume 41, Number 4: July/August 2007

“If social change is the agenda, then art must make up a large part of the toolkit,” writes Kevin Matthews in the introduction to this issue’s feature on Artists and Politics. Inside we have artwork from political poster-maker Rick Slye; activist, artist and traditional healer Shirley Bear; documentary photographer Darren Ell; and Palestinian artists Muthanna Al-Qadi and NidAl-Khairy, responding the 40 years of Israeli occupation. Also, Noam Gonick on the mural meltdown here in Winnipeg and Henry Heller on right-wing power in France.
