Life has become significantly more political in the new millennium, especially in the aftermath of the worldwide banking crisis. Art and Agenda explores the current interrelationship between art, activism and politics. It presents new visual concepts and commentaries that are being used to represent and communicate emotionally charged topics, thereby bringing them into local political and social agendas in a way far more powerful than words alone. The book looks at how art is not only reflecting and setting agendas, but also how it influences political reaction. The book introduces a variety of artists who are advocating political and social reform on a local as well as a global scale
