Disobedient Objects: How-To Guides

Disobedient objects are often carefully designed solutions to problems faced by activists on the ground, in the midst of social and political movements around the world.

The exhibition includes several take home guides on how-to make some of these objects, from Book Bloc Shields to Tear-Gas Masks.   Additionally, these How-To Guides are now available online.  You can download these PDF guides by following the link below:

These guides were made available with help from many of the activists who created these objects.  The How-To guides themselves were illustrated by Marwan Kaabour at Barnbrook.  You can read more about Barnbrook’s designs for ‘Disobedient Objects’ via this link.
