"The Right to Look: Technologies of Direct Democracy"
A reception will follow the lecture.

About the event:
In this talk I will look at the analysis of visuality formed in my book The Right to Look and how it has informed my subsequent activism in the Occupy and Strike Debt movements. I question how we might imagine a countervisuality, write a history of the anonymous and create techniques of direct democracy with reference to critical theory, digital humanities and direct action.
