“The image allows for the viewer to interpret it quickly. And I guess that’s what an advertiser tries to do–that’s what a propagandist tries to do.” – Kevin Caplicki
In this episode, Brooke Shuman talks to Kevin Caplicki, one of the founders of Interference Archive and a member of Justseeds. Founded in 1998, Justseeds is a worker-owned cooperative that produces politically-themed prints. With members working from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, Justseeds operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly minded printmakers and as a loose collection of creative individuals with unique viewpoints and working methods. Justseeds produces collective portfolios on subjects including climate justice, the Zapatista movement, migration, reproductive rights, and the US prison system.
