Fight the power! We're 50 years on from the turmoil of 1968, but the need to express dissent and protest is still strong. The new Varoom looks at artists who are using their work to effect social and political change around the world. Inside Olivia Ahmad, the curator of the House of Illustration, talks to the director of the Design Museum Margaret Cubbage about how graphics and illustration are vital tools for fighting power and misinformation, Paul Gravett looks at the new wave of Arab comics and cartoonists, and Mexican street artists and muralists Himed & Reyben tell Tristan Manco about street art, stencilling and being censured.
Varoom is the magazine of the AOI and covers contemporary illustrated image in depth, featuring interviews with illustrators, image-makers and designers as well as featuring critical articles on different aspects of contemporary illustration by leading commentators.
