Experimental Humanities Workshop on “Visual Civic Literacy”

Workshop
Visual Civic Literacy Workshop
Saturday, June 19, 2021, 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

Together with Marsha Siefert, Cold War media and cultural diplomacy expert at Central European University, and Jeremy Adelman, expert in global history and director of the Global History Lab at Princeton University, the workshop aims to analyze the visual languages of the protests of 1968 and the BLM movement.

Building on this knowledge, the workshop participants will create their poster-interpretations of both events. Participants going to reflect on how political identities speak through visual symbols and slogans in order to use the public visual space more mindfully.

Every participant will receive a certificate of attendance. The best posters will be selected and awarded; however no digital drawing skill is required for participation.
