    Image Activism in the Face of Fascism w/ AK Thompson

    1pm – 4pmWooden Shoe Books, 704 South St

    According to anti-fascist cultural critic Walter Benjamin, people's ideas and actions are often shaped and amplified by images. How, then, should radicals intervene in the image field?

    In this workshop facilitated by AK Thompson (author of Premonitions: Selected Essays on the Culture of Revolt), participants will learn to decipher an image's social resonance while devising strategic responses capable of clarifying political aims and activating constituencies. Through an engagement with case studies, theoretical analyses, and practical activities, we will develop an effective image activism repertoire.
