From October 5 to December 10, the Illustration Embassy presents: Trailblazers. Illustration as a driver of social issues in the 20th century. An exhibition based on historical research about high-profile socially committed contemporaries of Fiep Westendorp. Expo with podcast, publication and side program in adjacent Ketelhuis, Pazannistraat 6 in Amsterdam
From Jo Brocklehurst who made the liberating nightlife visible in her virtuoso style and broke through with her powerful punk and SM portraits to Chinook-Malawi-Kalinka about the rights of her ancestors and native Americans. From Sue Coe, who draws attention to the injustice done to non-human animals with her work, to Fiep Westendorp, who campaigned for women's labor participation with her astute work for Het Parool.
In addition to work by more than ten pioneering illustrators, the exhibition also shows the meaning and social expressiveness of illustrations in an international context and zeitgeist, in a way that has never been done before. During the exhibition, the pioneers will receive attention in a specially composed (film) program in the adjacent Ketelhuis.
