© 2011 AM New News is Old News

Black and Blue and Read All Over

At times like this the news can be depressing, but as they say, “saber es poder” (knowledge is power). So starting next week, AM and ME will be joining forces once again as participants in _gaia studio’s 6th annual Wonder Women Residency, New News is Old News, curated by Maya Joseph-Goteiner and Doris Caçoilo.

Our project is inspired by Buy Life’s Digital Death campaign, in which celebrities sacrifice their “digital lives” to raise money for HIV and AIDS research, and symbolize their act with staged photography. Together, AM and ME will be screening news stories and generating a series of “promo” ads in support of contentious topics, such as Arizona’s SB-1070 and the Dream Act.  Can visual art disguised as advertising stand up as a heavyweight in hot political debates on message boards and online forums?  Stay tuned to find out…
