Screening will be followed by “A Brief History of Propaganda,” led by writer, artist, lecturer, and curator Emily Pothast!
The word “propaganda” has its origins in the 17th century, however the concept of persuasive communication is nearly as old as the written word. During this brief slide talk and conversation, artist and media theorist Emily Pothast will outline some ways that propaganda has historically made use of new media technologies, from cuneiform to the printing press to the internet.
