Talking Allowed: Visual Influences on Legislation : Culture Jamming the Perth Modern School relocation proposal 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, by Professor Camilla Baasch Andersen, UWA School of Law, and artist Desmond Mah examines a new way for law and visualization to intersect.

Camilla and Desmond 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 influencing legislation? Should it be?

‘Talking Allowed’ is a new series of presentations offered by the UWA Institute of Advanced Studies and the UWA Cultural Precinct, where a UWA academic will give a short presentation on a topic of current relevance to the arts and culture before inviting the audience to participate in discussion.
