With everything that is going in Belgium right now, the 1918 wordless novel The Passion of a Man (25 images de la passion d'un home) by Frans Masereel speaks for itself. The silent story is about a young man who protests injustice against the working class in an industrialized society. He is executed by the authorities for leading a revolt against his employer.

"Hungarian Cubes. Subversive ornaments in socialism", edited and photos by Katharina Roters, published by Park Books, 2014.
"German-Hungarian artist Katharina Roters has produced a series of photographs documenting the ornamental patterns added to standardised dwellings in Hungary. The Hungarian Cube is a regimented type of home dating back to the 1920s, which can be found in many of the country's towns and suburbs. The buildings have become closely identified with post-war communism, and were often decorated by residents, creating an inadvertent protest against standardization." Read more about it here.
