CAMP is very proud to be able to present the talk "How To See – And Change – The World" by Nicholas Mirzoeff, Professor of Media, Culture and Communication at New York University (NYU) on June 9 from 7–9 pm. Mirzoeff has contributed to the catalog accompanying CAMP's current exhibition We shout and shout, but no one listens: Art from conflict zones and will be talking about how to see and change the world.
"From Brexit to Trump, it is clear there is a new global politics. It is literally reactionary – a reaction to a global set of changes. In short, the world is now young, urban, networked – and hot. One of the most striking changes has been an explosion in the number of visual images. In this talk, I will explore how the image is central to this new global economy. But it also serves as a way for people to express and explore their anxieties about this new world we all live in, in unequal and different ways. So visual culture is vital to understanding the world. More importantly still, it can be used to change it, as I will explore in Black Lives Matter and the South African 'Fall' movement."
The talk is conducted in English. All are welcome and admission is free.
