Taking place at a time of major political disruption, with the rise of populism and a swing to the right in Europe and the USA, following the Arab Spring, this exhibition takes a look through Magnum’s archive at photographs of protest from the 1930s to the present day.
Photographs that have taken on a totemic value in popular culture, such as Eve Arnold‘s portrait of civil rights activist Malcolm X (1962), Marc Riboud‘s Vietnam War protestor (1967) Stuart Franklin‘s Tank Man (1989) sit with powerful contemporary pictures from Ukraine by Jerome Sessini (2014) and Standing Rock (2017) by Larry Towell.
