Now that media justice is growing from an isolated concern to an
increasingly powerful national movement, it is an ideal time to look
back at the pioneering work of a small New York City collective that
began to address the issue 25 years ago. Paper Tiger Television (PTTV)
has used art, video and media criticism to question corporate media
ownership since 1981. Celebrating PTTV?s two and a half decades of
leadership in media art, media activism and media analysis, the
collective has produced a documentary to raise awareness of this
significant history and encourage new, creative media.
Screenings of the documentary and related presentations and events
will be the launching point to explore how the intersection of art,
activism and academic analysis can guide and inform the next
generation of innovative media.
Maria Juliana Byck, director and producer of ?Paper Tiger Reads Paper
Tiger Television? (2007, 45 mins) and collective member, will be at
all screenings except for SFAI. Events are free and open to the public
unless otherwise noted.
