22 Sep Protest (EN)
The Aesthetics of Resistance
Protest is a book reference to the aesthetically creative forces of resistance of the past fifty years or so. It looks into the different forms of political protest, from the more recent black lives matter to the 1950s and 60s civil rights and student movements. It shows how powerlessness and oppression generate all sorts of cynical, subversive, provocative and at times, violent modes of dissent against those with the power to set up the rules. Arranged according to the various ways of expressing protest including posters, sounds, and bodies, the books generous provision of imagery is complemented with analytical texts that dig into the origins and purpose of social discontent.
