"Does art really change anything? I do believe so…It is impossible for art to fix a declining economy or stop all wars, but art changes the way people see and understand reality. And if as artists we often lose faith in the impact of our work, those in power are quite aware of it.”
So writes Internationally renowned illustrator Luba Lukova, in her foreword to the 2010 peace calendar "Sparking Change". Lukova recently edited the calendar for The War Resisters League, an 86-year old pacifist group. It features political posters by artists from around the world, addressing a variety of issues, including war, equality and the environment. Check it out here.
