The Politics of Alternative Media
Politics of Alternative Media (PAM) is a year-long project conceived as a series of workshops, screenings, and lectures organized by a collective of researchers, artists, and curators gathered around la lumière collective, Concordia University’s Global Emergent Media Lab, and Feminist Media Studio. It aims to foster the exchange of ideas about grassroots, non-commercial and emancipatory practices using media as instruments of mobilization, empowerment, and community building. As an effort to counter the intensified reconfigurations of media landscape according to neoliberal logics, the project advocates forms of media cultures accessible to everyone and simultaneously invests in reimagining alternative media formations. PAM consists of Archives of Anticolonialism, Alternative Media Cultures, and Political Imaginary of waiting. It is coordinated by Giuseppe Fidotta, Sima Kokotovic, and Sanaz Sohrabi.
