Street art, tattoos and advertising iconography are a visual language of people today becoming an Esperanto for a globalised world. Much of the cultural production born of this reality, does not break through to everyday conversations outside of major cultural centers. Combine this with the silo creating algorithms of the internet and there becomes the need for a physical, analogue gateway to chance upon culture which isn’t already pre-sorted for you. The goal of The Art of Protest Gallery is to push these conversations beyond the tribes of country, religion, class and social media groups; and ultimately illuminate the common ground that we all stand on through the prism of contemporary visual culture.
