Soulèvements contemporains et mobilisations visuelles

By Alain Bertho


Between crisis in political representation and confrontation with the power of a theatrical show, present-day mobilizations are opening up a new path, a new language of revolt and rally: that of the image shared on Internet. The subjective community which appears there is temporary and has no sense of belonging, both individual and anonymous. Like the actions of the rioters, these images are a language to be decoded. This new visual repertory, true counterspectacle, leads researchers to renew their fields of research and their epistemology
