Art Is...The Permanent Revolution

The anger and outrage captured by graphic artists have defined revolutions through the centuries.

And the value and impact of this art is even more important today. In the new documentary, ART IS...

Among the wide range of 60 artists on display are Rembrandt, Goya, Daumier, Kollwitz, Dix, Masereel, Grosz, Gropper, and Picasso.
