"If the justice system does not allow changes, we will then change that system" | Insights | HiiL | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Around the world, legal systems and legal professionals, as well as social entrepreneurs are challenged with delivering more justice, to more people but with fewer resources. Innovations in the ready-made garment industry are helping global supply chains with the growing pressure of providing stable and fair conditions to its workers. We need more innovators who are up to the task. Governments, corporations and NGOs also need to learn how to work with them to strengthen their effectiveness, impact and return on investment.

9/11 Trilogy

9/11 Trilogy | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Coinciding with the worldwide release of Laura Poitras’ widely anticipated and critically acclaimed documentary CITIZENFOUR, Artists Space presents an exhibition dedicated to the filmmaker’s 9/11 Trilogy, including her previous features My Country, My Country and The Oath as well as three short films The Program, Death of a Prisoner, and PRISM Whistleblower. Together with CITIZENFOUR, these films rigorously document and address the expansion of the security state in the aftermath of 9/11. The 9/11 Trilogy considers, both obliquely and directly, a period in which access to information, and agency in relation to that information, has become contested ground among governments, citizens, security agencies, and the media. The films collectively raise vital questions around the role of critical visual culture at a historical juncture at which the construction of a social imaginary of “freedom” is positioned at odds with transparency and accountability.
