Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative is a decentralized network of 24 artists committed to making print and design work that reflects a radical social, environmental, and political stance. With members working from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, Justseeds operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly minded printmakers and as a loose collection of creative individuals with unique viewpoints and working methods. Projects with focus on history include Celebrate People’s History – the poster book of resistance and revolution, a presentation that celebrate collective fights, not just high-profile individuals, and A People’s Art History of the United States, a book that places art history squarely in the rough-and-tumble of politics and social struggles. Josh MacPhee’s text on Street Art and Social Movements is also an interesting read.
“From graffiti to posters, their work centers on political activism and social justice. Labor is a common motif, and migrant workers are found in many of their political posters.”
