Remember the The Beatles today

In this gallery, you will find expressions that attempt to understand the relationship between art, activism and social media. It has been inspired by art movements from the past, specifically Dadaism (or Dada), which challenged traditional views about war, class, religion, technology and morals. As a part of the movement, Dada artists would create collages using newspapers and magazines owned by the incumbent leaders, and use them as a medium for communicating ideas about radical communism – thus, attacking a biased system with a distortion of its own propaganda.
 

For creating You Say You Want a Revolution, I made a collage with artworks (collected from social media platforms) that express solidarity against the adoption of unconstitutional bills.

Represent your identity in a supportive community and feel the power of having agency over exchanging honest narratives.
