Retooling Dissent (2002)
Retooling Dissent documents the work of four art collectives (Las Agencias, Institute for Applied Autonomy, the Bikewriters, and StreetRec) deploying creative protest projects within the 2002 protests against the World Economic Forum in New York City. This work was documented in the video I co-edited with 4n6 and organized tours for: Retooling Dissent: Creative Resistance at the WEF 02-02-02. See the project website here and see the full video here:
Retooling Dissent screened in numerous festivals, exhibits and public events, and can be found on the Selectmedia DVD series, Blackedout Media TV, and in the Disobedience archive.
