OOMK: Self-publishing for Activism
How can self-publishing be used as a tool to address, challenge and fight against social injustice? In what ways is self-publishing being used in social movements today to inform, educate and bring about change? Taking inspiration from cultural and political activist John La Rose, cartoonist Naji al Ali, the magazine Gidra, and groups such as See Red Women's Workshop, the panel discussion aims to explore how artists and activists across the globe are using self-publishing to address urgent issues today.
Panelists Leila Abdelrazaq (author and artist), Marc Fischer (Temporary Services), Tempestt Hazel (independent curator), Sheika Lugtu (cartoonist and researcher) and members of OOMK share their perspectives and discuss the different ways that artists and activists in their communities are self-publishing for activism. The session is introduced by Yesomi Umolu, Logan Center Exhibitions Curator.
