The Silent Scream: Political and Social Comment in Books by Artists

October 12, 2011

I just got this book in the mail. It is a companion to an exhibition at Monash University Rare Books Library, Melbourne, Australia.
From the dust jacket, ” a journey through some of humanity’s most inhumane and hypocritical moments. The catalogue provides insights into 77 influential books and works presented in book form, of the past 90 years.”


Below is a two-page spread from a zine I edited back in 2006. It is exciting to see the work of Nicolas Lampert, Josh MacPhee, and Erik Ruin alongside John Heartfield and George Grosz in this catalogue.
You can read more about the book here.
