Protest in Print

Join this roundtable discussion with invited participants on the theme of Protest and Print


This Open Project Night meet up will be based on an exhibition of cultural periodicals that will be taking place during the day and will be expanding into an evening discussion of the role/importance of magazines, reviews, zines etc. in protest movements generally.


Please join us for a discussion surrounding an exhibition of cultural reviews and magazines from the 1968 period. Texts and images from across Europe and North America will be on display.

The discussion will ask:

  • How important is the print press in expressing and sharing ideas at times of unrest and protest?
  • Have the printed word and image been replaced by digital communications in the twenty-first century?
  • How do material and ideas cross national and language borders? What is the role of translation?

Emanuela Patti, Ellen Pilsworth, and Katie Blair will lead the conversation.
