Video documenting a similar performance:

Lecture abstract:
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.
