Media’s Social Arena from Posts to Clippings with Artist Aslı Uludağ

Pera Adult

  • May 17, 2022 / 19:30

We first attend a virtual tour of the And Now the Good News: Works from the Nobel Collection exhibition, which takes the newspaper as an intellectual starting point and focuses on the relationship between text and news, the ways in which the invention of photography have shaped society, and the powerful effect totalitarian systems have on mass media.Then, we discuss why today’s media socialization is mainly attached to digital media with artist Aslı Uludağ, who investigates the contemporary techno-scientific, architectural, and legal interventions to the environment and the violence that accompanies them. Next, we look at some newspaper clippings, all from the same time period, and construct an imaginary day using the information we gather from these. We write a letter describing this imaginary day and prepare a social arena diagram based on this letter. From here, we study the social arena described by the newspaper clippings, map this arena by writing and drawing specific locations, and reimagine social media through this lens.
