Snack&Surge Brunch: Media Insurgency
The SNACK & SURGE Brunches create a performative and gastronomic theatre of operations addressing political, technological and artistic questions relating to the poetics of power. We invite the DEAF audience to kick off their day pondering the aesthetics, actions and media of resistance and critique. Part hang-out, part culinary experiment, SNACK & SURGE intends to be a caress for the palate, an opener for the mind, and a rebelliously festive wake-up for the mood.
Rise and start your day deliciously: biting at the poetics of power!

Media Insurgency (re)considers practices of tactical media post 9/11, an era reigned by security panic and xenophobic suspicion. Artists and media activists function as agents provocateurs, using guerilla tactics or alternatively the very strategies of the dominant power structures to subvert, dissent, disrupt, stretch, make visible, play with and critique the properties and aesthetics at work in our current control society.
