SEEING POWER: ART AND ACTIVISM IN THE 21ST CENTURY. Nato Thompson. Melville House Publishing, Brooklyn, 2015. Distributed by Penguin Random House LLC, New York. 176 pp. with 11 ills. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9781612190440 In English.
Publisher's description: With the rise of social networking, even our contemporaries, peers, and friends are all suddenly selling us the ultimate product: themselves. Here curator and critic Nato Thompson interrogates the implications of these developments for those dedicated to socially engaged art and activism. How can anyone find a voice and make change when the world is flooded with images and information? And what is one to make of the endless machine of consumer capitalism, which has appropriated much from the history of art and, in recent years, the methods of grassroots political organizing and social networking? Highlighting the work of some of the most innovative and interesting artists and activists working today, Thompson reads and praises sites and institutions that empower their communities to see power and re-imagine it.
