What Matters Now

I’m sitting in a discussion led by Deb Willis at Aperture with the exhibition What Matters Now

Ideas and Links from our discussion:

Anti Photo Journalism exhibition in 2010
link to some interviews on youtube

Is Front Page a generational nomenclature?

The Ethics of Presentation

WHAT IS NEWS? what is the journey for ‘news’ to get attention?

Frontpage creates a hierachy that may no longer be relevant. (or maybe it really never was except to people who were subjects of the front page)

Who decides what is useful?
We need new models.
How do we expand our horizons? How we can learn from multiple sources?
Who is the WE in we need to teach media literacy?
Class plays a big part in how/where we get our news.
