Sarah Awad will defend her thesis: The Social Life of Urban Images: A study of revolutionary street art in Egypt


04.06.2018 kl. 14.00 - 17.00


About the thesis

This thesis looks at visual images as psychological and political tools for social action. Social actors produce images to represent and propagate particular versions of social reality. These images are in turn interpreted, transformed, reconstructed, and destroyed by other social actors in a continuous process of negotiating social reality and the power of representing it in the public space.
