Seeing Power

Notes

A fog of information and images has flooded the world: from advertising, television, radio and film to the information glut produced by the new economy. With the rise of social networking, contemporaries, peers and friends are all suddenly selling us the ultimate product: themselves. Thompson interrogates the implications of these developments for those dedicated to socially engaged art and activism.
