Kendell Geers participates in global poster campaign

Geers takes part in Time for Outrage! , a global poster campaign that gives acclaimed artists and members of the public a platform to voice what they are outraged about in the world today. The first edition runs from 18 July – 1 September 2017 on the prominent billboards of the Great Eastern Street Gallery Wall, London, with approximately 2.1 million passers-by per month. The project is a response to the eponymous book Indignez-Vous! (Time for Outrage!), in which author and French Resistance member Stéphane Hessel (1917-2013) tells the youth of today that their lives and liberties are worth fighting for. Remembering the ideals for which he risked his life, while never forgetting the evils against which he struggled, the writer and diplomat calls on all of us to take back the rights that have been jeopardised or taken away all together. The poster campaign will take place in various cities around the world, including London, Berlin, Athens, Moscow, Istanbul, Mexico City and New York City, culminating on 11 December 2018, international Human Rights Day. Other artists include Jake and Dinos Chapman, John Cooper Clarke, Laure Prouvost, Linder Sterling, Robert Montgomery and John Isaacs. The London campaign is initiated by Alteria Art in collaboration with Zarina Rossheart of Unlimited Productions, with support from Gaia Art Foundation, Village Underground, Ace Hotel London, Wren Artists and Portable Print Studio.
