Initiated in 2016, this project documents the gestures surrounding political flags of the past century and their related movements. Initially functioning as an archive in the form of a printed publication, the project examines the significance of the flag as a symbolic form of resistance in various political movements.

It’s difficult to imagine the events that characterise human history without the presence of symbols and flags. These instruments of political resistance, national pride, of occupation, act as mirrors, preserving and reflecting the beliefs and aspirations of its people.

‘Form of resistance’ is concerned with the act of a political gesture. These gestures are encapsulated through the relationship between the flag an the actions of the flag bearer. By exploring this relationship the aim is to illuminate an alternative way of mapping the trajectory of the political activity of human society.

In 2017, four typographic banners were produced in response to the publication specifically for the Testing Grounds site. The flags were screen printed in collaboration with Melbourne based designer, Andrew Clapham.

This project has been supported by the RMIT- Print Imaging Practice. Kindly supported by Richard Harding.
