A World to Win: Posters of Protest and Revolution presents a century of posters agitating for political change.

From the ‘Votes for Women’ campaign of the early Twentieth Century to the recent Occupy movements, the poster has been used to mobilise, educate and organise. Bringing together around seventy posters from the V&A’s collection, A World to Win: Posters of Protest and Revolution looks at the defining features of protest graphics, showcasing the work of diverse artists, graphic designers and print collectives.
