From Chinese, Japanese, and Korean monks to Ai Weiwei and the Gao Brothers, protest has often been the motivation for the production of exceptional works of art. Robert Mintz, Deputy Director of the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, examines several familiar themes and iconic images in the arts of East Asia that originated as protest art or that have been taken up as symbols
of resistance.
