Breaking the Spell author Chris Robé presents a visual essay that documents the rise of video activism from the 1960s to the present. Video plays an increasingly important role among activists in the growing global battles against neoliberalism. Subjectivity itself becomes a key terrain of struggle as capitalism mines it through social media sites, cell phone technology, and new “flexible” work and living patterns. As a result, alternative media production serves a central location where new forms of collective resistance can be cultivated.
