Werker 7 – The Language of Revolution, Index
, 2013

Installation, 30 x 40 cm
Werker Magazine is a project by Marc Roig Blesa and Rogier Delfos that looks at the relationship between labour and photographic representation. This installation is drawn from Werker 7, an issue inspired by concepts taken from Ariella Azoulay’s conference entitled The Language of Revolution – Tidings from the East, in which revolution is seen as a civil language that takes place in the public sphere and the spectator’s civil responsibility in the context of conflicts is put into question. Examining photography’s role in the construction of a global revolutionary language, the norms of conventional display are inverted as captions take the place of images that allude to social movements and revolution worldwide.
