Overview

This program on Election Day considers performances that have held a mirror to society by adopting the visual language of protest. Radio personality Bob Fass asks New Yorkers to make sense of the Bob Hope and Chairman Mao signs in Öyvind Fahlström's Mao-Hope March (1966). Mircea Cantor's assembled group in The Landscape Is Changing (2003) reflects the built environment of Tirana, Albania. At the famed Speakers' Corner in London, artist Carey Young delivers a corporate skills workshop on successful communication in Everything You've Heard Is Wrong (1999).
