06.03.2014 Werker 7 — The Language of Revolution
Launch of Werker 7 — The Language of Revolution
Audio reading of Ariella Azoulay’s essay at 8pm
This issue of Werker takes its title from ‘The Language of Revolution — Tidings from the East’, a lecture given by Ariella Azoulay in 2011 at the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona. Her analysis of Egypt’s revolution, through images from the internet, became the inspiration for this work.
Selected keywords from Azoulay’s text serve to articulate a visual alphabet of revolution illustrated by a selection of images taken from internet during 2009 and 2011. Werker 7 consists of a newspaper that is meant to be read and discussed collectively by displaying its pages on a wall at home, at school or on the floor of a public square… What is a revolutionary image? Which aesthetic elements are involved in the making of a revolution? Does revolution have a global language? What role does photography and the mass-media play in all this?
