Roundtable 2 : MANIFESTOS & INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
We will sample media manifestos that use stark language, technique and imagery to spread a clear message. We’ll also view examples of radical journalism taking a stance against mainstream media news via community participation, infiltration and alternative methods of distribution.
About this roundtable series:
A how-to and critique of techniques and tactics for political activism, direct action, and dissent taught through radical and experimental documentary. In this roundtable series we will present screenings and discussions with media makers, theorists, thinkers and activists.
Pedagogy for Dissent surveys documentary media created at the intersection of art and activism, exploring the power of the image, culture jamming experiments, tactics and strategies of media making and distribution. We will take a critical and grateful look at activism of the past in order to design effective contemporary modes of dissent.
