I'm an artist, educator and activist particularly interested in learning from tactics, props and gestures used as protests. I use this blog as a platform to archive and communicate examples of what I call 'gestures of defiance'-exciting, urgent and relevant actions that link protest histories and present radical potentials. On this blog I'm simply compiling and reposting examples I find as they happen. Months may go by with out a post but the blog as an archive is still active.

SCREENING PROTEST: (tele)visual narratives of dissent across time, space and genre
The problem of representation at the heart of contemporary
societies is double-edged, with both political elites and professional
journalists challenged by rebellion in politics, revolution in communication
technology and blurred borders. The Screening Protest project brings together
political science, media studies and critical visual art perspectives to
explore this problem through three studies, comparing mediations of political
dissent across time, space and narrative genre. Read more about the project and
follow our progress on this site.
