The Persistent, Polarizing Protest Poster

Friday, October 9

Public spaces in which posters flourished are fading fast. The printing that made posters the most immediate and necessary medium are being eclipsed by other technologies.  This session will look at the history of protest posters, and spur discussion on the ways in which designers can harness the graphic power of posters for new visual tools that can help social movements to organize and communicate in new ways.

Film Screening: Mexican Dream (Sueño Mexicano) and The Kelleys, filmmakers in attendance September 25, 7pm

MEXICAN DREAM is a film about the contradictions in the public discourse towards immigration. It is a story of economic desperation and societal alienation on both sides of the border: the people of Magdalena Peñasco in Oaxaca, Mexico, who go to Austin, Minnesota, to quarter pigs for Hormel Foods, the makers of Spam products. Communities change with migration, and in the process of adapting the old can sometimes not assimilate with the new. Filmmaker Jon and then-Ph.D. student Alex Euler document part of this uneasy transition.
