“What did you do…” – new posters for Palestine in our fundraiser series

What did you do… (2024) is a poster project commissioned by Book Works to mark 40 years of commissions and book making. In response to the urgent humanitarian crisis in Gaza overshadowing all our activity, we have invited artists to contribute work that speaks to ideas of solidarity with the oppressed, and liberation for the occupied, for a series of A3 posters. All proceeds from this project will be donated to Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP).

Posters are now available to buy in various editions priced from £10–75 (+VAT), with work from Jeremy Deller, Dora García, Karl Holmqvist, Marianne Keating, Rosalind Nashashibi, Sofia Niazi, Katrina Palmer and Charlie Prodger.

Other participating artists will include: Hamja Ahsan, Banu Cennetoğlu, Marcus Coates, Jesse Darling,  Falgoush Collective, Fehras Publishing Practices with Nancy Naser Al Deen and Sina Ahmadi, Deborah-Joyce Holman, Prem Sahib, Tai Shani, Anne Tallentire, Joanne Tatham and Tom O’Sullivan, Rosa-Johan Uddoh, and Cecilia Vicuña.

The first poster was produced by Book Works to mark the workplace day of action to #standwithgaza, and is still available to buy in our shop. Gaza, Cease Fire Now by Rosalind Nashashibi is a free poster designed by Sara De Bondt, which comes with any purchase of Gaza and is released on International Women’s Day 2024.
