Workshop Schedule


February 23 Thursday

Human Rights Workshop: Avram Finkelstein, Artist & Activist, "Fire with Fire: Resistance in an Image Culture"

12:10PM to 1:30PM

Faculty Lounge

We live in an Image Culture. Images are the sky, rocks and trees of a media landscape, but suiting up for the 21st century means learning everything there is to know about how they actually work. If you’re still flummoxed by a President who seized power by running his candidacy as if it were a brand, come roll up your sleeves for a crash course in that other brand, Resistance.
