Join Incite/Insight and the CIIS Anthropology & Social Change Department for a night of video resistance by Chris Robé, from 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm, including discussion with Chris.
Video plays an increasingly important role among activists in the growing global resistance against neoliberal capitalism. Subjectivity itself becomes a key terrain of struggle as capitalism mines it through social media sites, cell phone technology, and new “flexible” work and living patterns. As a result, alternative media production serves a central location where new collective forms of subjectivity can be created to challenge aspects of neoliberalism.
Using a screening and discussion of short-form films and videos, Chris Robé will illustrate the rise of video activism from the 1960s to the present, based in part on his newly released book Breaking the Spell: A History of Anarchist Filmmakers, Videotape Guerrillas, and Digital Ninjas.
Free but an RSVP is required.
