MISS BERLIN FRAMED

mail
“A growing, medial archive of performative scenes, roles and places performed live. Between movement and frozen images in the medium and also with MISS BERLIN FRAMED.

“A field of tension live and in the projection. A back-and-forth. Who wins is unclear, and it is also not the question.”*

Sabine Reinfeld brings her performance piece MISS BERLIN FRAMED to Los Angeles this weekend.

DU BOIS’ DATA PORTRAITS

9780940450332

W.E.B. Du Bois—author, sociologist, civil rights advocate, co-founder of the NAACP—was also a pioneer of data visualization.

“Working with ink, gouache, graphite, and photographic prints, Du Bois and his student and alumni collaborators at Atlanta University generated crisp, dynamic, and modern graphics as a form of infographic activism. Sixty-three brightly colored broadsheets were exhibited in Paris and made twenty years before the founding of the Bauhaus.

“These visualizations offer a prototype of design practices now vital in our contemporary world—of design for social innovation, data visualization in service to social justice, and the decolonization of pedagogy.”*
