A Win For Very Classical Propaganda*, 2018
Broadsheet newspaper, video
A Win For Very Very Classical Communication Propaganda* is a project that seeks to understand the success of the Vote Leave campaign, and the role of media influences that led the UK to vote out of the European Union. These understandings have been put together in forms of a newspaper and animations. The newspaper can be taken apart from the centre fold, each sheet then becomes, on one side, a poster and an article on the other. The sheets each relate to a different view that seeks to give explanation as to how untrue information is able to influence and survive in society.
* “All the biggest newspapers were behind Brexit. The Daily Telegraph, The Sun, The Daily Mail. The biggest broadsheet, the biggest tabloid and the biggest middle brow newspapers.”
The Will to Believeby William James, 1896
A lecture which defends, in certain cases, the adoption of a belief without prior evidence of its truth.
Public Opinion by Walter Lippmann, 1922
