Political Advertisement IX

Political Advertisement IX 1952-2016

For 32 years, artists Antoni Muntadas and Marshall Reese have been compiling a history of presidential campaign spots, following the evolution of political advertising from its beginnings in 1952 to the present. “Political Advertisement” is a probing vision of how politics and politicians are presented through the medium of TV. For the past nine general elections, the artists have premiered the latest version of the video in a public presentation at a wide variety of locations (MoMA, RedCat, SVA, EAI, ...).

After this screening, Director Marshall Reese will join Professor Howard Besser and two Tisch students for a panel discussion on the construction and impact of campaign advertising, particularly focusing on the most recent presidential campaign. The panel will also encourage audience involvement in a robust discussion on politics, aesthetics and art. Please join us!
