Talking Allowed: Culture Jamming the Perth Modern School Relocation Proposal : This presentation examines a new way for law and visualization to intersect Other events...
Culture Jamming is defined as a movement that mixes politics with graffiti, and satire with paint. Said by some to scramble “... the signal, injects the unexpected, and spurs audiences to think critically and challenge the status quo”, this presentation examines a new way for law and visualization to intersect. We will showcase some of the many artistic works produced by artists and children to protest the recent proposal to relocate Perth Modern School to an inner-city high-rise, as well as jamming sites which promote racial equality, and ask the question: Is this controversial way of visually expressing public resistance and opinion effective in ifluencing legislation? Should it be?
Speaker(s) Professor Camilla Baasch Andersen, UWA School of Law and artist Desmond Mah
