New College Cultural Center
766 Valencia Street, SF
Taking Control of Your Visual Landscape is a presentation about 1) how our visual environment controls our social space from the top down, and 2) ways to contest this. We will begin with a discussion of how corporations and the state use our environment, the "visual landscape," to create a monologue of control, and how this monologue frames our thoughts and behaviors. A slide show will be presented displaying an extremely broad array of styles and techniques of intervening in this system, spanning across both decades and continents. These images help provoke our imaginations as to what a real public dialogue on the street might look like and show how possible it is.
Josh MacPhee is an activist, curator, artist and the author of "Stencil Pirates."
