50 Years On Why We Still Need Amnesty, 2011. From 50 Years Of Poster Power. Size A2.

Artists have been closely involved in the story of Amnesty International for 50 years. The famous Amnesty logo of a candle circled by barbed wire was designed by British artist Diana Redhouse at Peter Benenson's (Amnesty's founder) request. He wanted something to illustrate an old proverb: 'It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.' Both words and image are now indelibly associated with Amnesty, powerfully symbolizing the human struggle for justice and dignity. Hundreds of other artists, including internationally recognised names such as Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro, have lent their talents to that cause over the years. The images from '50 Years Of Poster Power' are just a small sample. It will be a long road before human rights becomes a reality for everyone on Earth. But artists, like Amnesty, will be there every step of the way.
