Any Word
2020
The American Civil Rights Movement shaped the political consciousness of the 1960s. Non-violent protest was widely used to condemn racism and demand equal rights for all citizens.

'Any Word' reflects the idea that it is the intention that lies behind a word, as much as the word itself, that reveals most about people's prejudices.

Any word intended to alienate or deny another person's humanity is an obscenity.

'Any Word' is part of socialart.work, a mass public art project by public artist
Martin Firrell
calling for greater social justice.

It aims to create debate about power and gender, women's equality and masculinity, alternative forms of economic and social organisation, black power, and solidarity between people from different backgrounds and ethnicities.

It includes posters, publications and events supported in 2018-19 by the artist's residency with leading Out of Home media company
Clear Channel UK.
