HYB4 Student: Social Screenings: Ways of Seeing, John Berger – Part 2 (1972)
Berger offers a master-class in how to interpret images through a historical materialist lens. Famously, he did so in an extremely accessible, enjoyable way; for Berger, being able to expose the ideologies and the history of class struggles which shape ideology was a practical tool, and one that had to be available to the masses if it is to serve them. We will watch episodes 3 & 4 which are each 30 minutes long.
Episode 3: Oil pantings and status
Episode 4: Photography, publicity and advertising
The episodes will be screened in English, with English subtitles. There will be an informal discussion after the episodes/* GALLERY */ ?>
