Jonas Staal is a visual artist and activist whose work deals with the relationship between art, propaganda and democracy. Discussing his most recent book Propaganda Art in the 21st Century, he explains how all art is, in a sense, propaganda and touches on the importance of applying lessons from activism to his work.
