SESSION 7: ONLINE VIDEO AS A POLITICAL TOOL

How does online and ubiquitous video culture, and in particular, approaches based in remix and aggregation relate to a human rights culture that is concerned for the dignity and integ- rity of victims and survivors, ethical witnessing and the preservation of the intentionality of the original creators of material as well as the original indexical value of the mate- rial as documentation of human rights crisis? How do we balance differing ethical responsibilities to victim, survivor and the original intention with the potential of remix, re-circu- lation, and appropriation, as well as curatorial or aggregational approaches, to speak to the personalization and creativity that generate activism in a younger digitally-literate gene-ra- tion, and produce creative, effective and individualized advocacy videos? Videos considered will include remix videos on police brutality, sex worker
advocacy videos, art videos incor- porating human rights content, and video work from and about sites of mass atrocity, as well as tools of aggregation such as video walls and mapping approaches.
