Who, what, where...

Dickinson, R. (2009) Who, what, where... [Show/Exhibition]
Creators:Dickinson, R.
Abstract:Who, What, Where… investigates the historical role of the government press briefing in the materialization of certain political realities. The work presents the footage and the script of a televisual press briefing on the subject of war, delivered by a presidential and a military figure in a meticulously constructed press conference environment. The script is composed solely of fragments of press statements of the past thirty years, showing how language and media are used for the governing of public consent.
