The Power of Activist Videos
In the attempt to win viewers’ hearts and minds, various new film forms and practices are emerging in the networked spaces of the Web 2.0. These new types of videos actively engage their audience by inviting participation, and thus contribute to the formation of counterpublics and social movements.
However, the power of web videos remains a contentious issue, as it is often associated with problems such as misuse, deception, ‘clicktivism‘ or surveillance.
The conference will bring together international researchers and activists to discuss the political aesthetics, strategies, and impact of these new lm forms – in short, the power of contemporary activist videos.For longer version please see
