You will notice that I have posted two videos for the upcoming session on rioting as community action. I think they make a great pairing with the readings. I would like each of you, if you have time, to watch the videos (total not much than 15 mins) as well as read the readings in preparation for Monday. To me, I think you should firstly watch ‘Reframing the riots’ and then Zizek’s interpretation (not far off Harvey’s).
Also, please note that there are two videos accompanying the session on ‘art as community action.’ Both relate directly to examples discussed in key readings from this session. It might seem a bit easier to relate the theorising with the interventions themselves if we can see a visual documentation of them.
