In 1968, protesters outside the Democratic National Convention in Chicago chanted "The whole world is watching," and shortly thereafter their images appeared on the evening news. These days, protesters bring their own cameras and post their clips on YouTube.

How have media technologies and practices changed the roles of public space, performance, and the human body in politics? How have new forms of mediation and distribution altered the ways in which history is produced and experienced? In this afternoon's performative lecture, artist Mark Tribe will discuss recent work and current projects, including the Dystopia Files, an archive of video clips depicting public interactions between police and protesters in North America since 1999.

Cosponsored by Ohio State's Department of Art.
