ART AND SOCIAL JUSTICE: THE MEDIA CONNECTION. Ed. by Mike Hajimichael. Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Newcastle upon Tyne, 2015. 134 pp. with 3 ills. 22 x 16 cm. ISBN 9781443871969 In English.
Publisher's description: This book is a collection of articles that reflect on various connectivities between art and social justice and media, which are pertinent to studying contemporary societies. How different forms of media and art, in the broadest possible meaning of these terms, reflect on, relate to, and campaign for social justice is an important topic to consider as artists, academics and activists. The subject matter of the book is also contextualized, with attention being paid to historical, cultural and communication factors, and with chapters referencing situations and collaborations in Brazil, Cyprus, Greece and South Africa. This is the first time that such a broad range of contexts are being considered together within the pursuit of studies on art and social justice. Furthermore, this book concentrates on how different art forms are manifest, in relation to social justice issues in an ever-changing world mediated by the Internet. How much mobilization happens online through art and media, and how much happens in reality (offline) are issues explored at length with regard to youth and participation in social change.
