For its 68th issue, Visionaire magazine asked the artists and activists to create a poster on issues ranging from gun violence and criminal justice to climate change and equal voting rights.
The protest posters, which are available to download on Opensource, feature designs by Nan Goldin, Katerina Jebb collaborating with Tilda Swinton, Vivienne Westwood, Tiona Nekkia McClodden, Candice Breitz, Martine Gutierrez, Marilyn Minter, Faith Ringgold, and Kim Gordon, as well as duo Zoe Buckman and Hank William Thomas.
The posters aim to "re-contextualise" the protest poster as an art object, while also providing an "essential tool of modern political activism". They are intended to be used at protests and can be downloaded and printed at home.
"This edition — comprised of ten images with text addressing the current state of the world — exploits the democratic power of art and the traditional, political imperative of the protest poster," said Visionaire.
"The works in this edition are intended to be used on the streets of our cities and towns to proclaim what we hold dear."
Among the designs is Nan Goldin's poster on the opioid crisis, which features a backdrop of painkiller tubs with the text, "pain killers" etched in red. "Pain" is crossed out, leaving only the word, "killers".
Multi-media artist Candice Breitz addressed advocating for and delivering services to South African sex workers in her bright orange poster that includes the words, "Sex work is real work" in a bold black text.
Actor Tilda Swinton worked together with photographer and filmmaker Katerina Jebb to create an imposing poster against gun violence. Jebb's technique is to scan Swinton's face, rather than use a camera, and overlay this with the word "disarm" within her mouth.
Elsewhere, fashion designer and activist Vivienne Westwood focuses on climate change, with a poster depicting a map of the world with all the uninhabitable parts coloured in red, were the earth's temperature is to rise by five degrees.
"People ask, 'What can I do to help save the environment?' In all my time as an activist, I've never had a satisfactory answer," said Westwood.
"If you draw a line parallel with Paris, everything below that is uninhabitable. This means by the end of this century there will only be one billion people left. Global warming is at the tipping point. If we go past it, we can’t stop it. All the methane kicks in. We're there right now. We have to stop it!"
For her poster, latinx transgender artist Martine Gutierrez reimagined a shoe advert originally printed in her fictional fashion magazine Indigenous Woman.
"For minorities who sit at the often isolating crux of intersectionality, how do we ensure our voices are not jeopardised by opportunity? How can we work against the very power structures that propagate beauty and normalcy to the masses?" Gutierrez said.
"In the pursuit of personal gain, we look at collaborations as positive opportunities, but for those of us who are minorities, we are almost always objectified, tokenised, and used to diversify or assume ally-ship," she explained.
Tiona Nekkia McClodden enlisted the help of rapper Pusha T to create a poster on the criminal justice system, drawing on her personal experience of unjust incarceration and railroading.
"Railroading is what happens to first time offenders who are pushed recklessly through the criminal justice system without any thought or delay," she explained.
"The criminal justice system in Philadelphia often “railroads” young, black and people of colour first-time offenders through a straight to prison pipeline with no hope whatsoever of fair treatment or reprieve," she continued.
The poster features Tiona holding up a sign that reads, "railroading", with the text "I lived through it" in red.
Also in the collection is a protest poster on equal voting rights by artists Zoe Buckman and Hank Willis Thomas, a poster on women's rights by Sonic Youth singer Kim Gordon, a poster by artist Marilyn Minter that urges us to "resist"; and a poster on gender equality by artist Faith Ringgold.
