The Design of Dissent Collection

About the Collection

“The Design of Dissent,” an exhibition and book created by Milton Glaser and Mirko Ilić, examined the vital graphic response to the constraints of government and suppressive political forces. The exhibition was held at SVA in 2005 and featured more than 100 political posters and other graphic art from around the world. Ilić published an updated edition of the book in 2017, adding political graphics created between 2005-2017.  Most of the original posters and ephemera are available for study in the Archives. Contact the Archives for a list of the available items from the extended edition.
