A new anti-fascist publication presenting 16 linocut prints by Sue Coe completed between 2017 and September 2020, and a text by art historian Stephen F. Eisenman, that chronicles the current dangerous political precipice the United States is now teetering on. This is an urgent lesson book on the warning signs of fascism as it appears to be advancing into American culture. This project is published to coincide with the looming 2020 American presidential election.
Sue Coe (born 21 February 1951) is an English-born, American artist and illustrator working primarily in drawing, printmaking, and in the form of illustrated books and comics. Her work is in the tradition of social protest art and is highly political. Coe's work often includes animal rights commentary, though she also creates work that centralizes the rights of marginalized peoples and criticizes capitalism. Her commentary on political events and social injustice are published in newspapers, magazines and books. Her work has been shown internationally in both solo and group exhibitions and has been collected by various international museums. She lives in Upstate New York and is represented by Galerie St. Etienne in New York City.
Stephen F. Eisenman is Professor of Art History at Northwestern University and the author of Gauguin’s Skirt (Thames and Hudson, 1997), The Abu Ghraib Effect (Reaktion, 2007), and The Cry of Nature: Art and the Making of Animal Rights (Reaktion, 2015) among other books. Eisenman is also a curator, critic, activist and co-founder of the non-profit, Anthropocene Alliance.
“…similar to the cheap antifascist chapbooks produced by John Heartfield, an artist in Nazi-era Germany.” —Hilarie M. Sheets, The New York Times
