BOYCOTT! THE ART OF ECONOMIC ACTIVISM:
POSTERS FROM HISTORICAL & CONTEMPORARY BOYCOTT MOVEMENTS
This exhibition uses the power of poster art to provide a visual history of economic activism over the last 60 years. On the surface, the campaigns featured here may seem to have little in common. Some target businesses or corporations because of their discriminatory hiring practices, unfair labor conditions, poor environmental records, or lack of respect for basic human rights. Others challenge government institutions to change specific laws or policies. Still, other movements call for boycotts and/or divestment from states or countries because of systematic human rights abuses. What links all of these campaigns is their use of economic pressure as a nonviolent tactic to challenge economic, social, and political injustices.
