News – The Televised Revolution
Monika Huber – Susanne Fischer
The year 2012 is forever associated with protest – from Occupy Wall Street protesters in America to the Arab Spring in Tunisia and Egypt, and popular unrest in the face of austerity measures in Greece and Spain. The evening news covers these events in one-and-a half minute segments, accompanied by a flood of images, making them difficult for viewers to assess.
News is a collaboration between journalist Susanne Fischer and artist Monika Huber. Fischer, a reporter stationed in Baghdad, has direct experience of revolution and brings together articles by contributors from Egypt, Bahrain, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen and Syria. She also includes essays on freedom of the press and the role of the social media in enabling revolution. Huber draws on the Occupy Wall Street protests, the earthquake and nuclear-reactor accident in Japan and the massacre in Norway. Photographing and manipulating images from the news, she creates photo-art that casts a critical eye on the selection, presentation and perception of these images. News offers a fresh look at the news we see today.
