Signals: Everyday Propaganda

Everyday Propaganda will focus on contemporary images and techniques of propaganda. With the worldwide economic and ideological unrest, there is a boom in propaganda. It is being revived across the world in new, powerful and subtle forms, through Internet and social networks, Cinema , and TV. In times of social upheaval and digital revolution everyone is eager to produce, receive and spread messages which aim to define and clarify the world around us. 

The media landscape is a mass of contradictions, on the one hand the notorious reputation of classic propaganda is partly neutralized by use in popular culture and, on the other hand, popular as well as digital cultures are appropriated for extremely violent propaganda. The programme displays a wide spectrum of everyday propaganda and consists of three parts - films, exhibition and workshops.
