Gentle Public Activism

Now this is an art project I really like. The project involves installing historical markers with a primarily political instead of historical message. And the messages are quite stark. The presentation adds to the authenticity of the message, far more effective than if they were posted to a blog like this one or another passage in a book.

Have a look here and here at Sociological Images.

What a fabulous idea!

Somewhere in old Montreal there's a real plaque that reads something to the affect of: 'On this spot The Empire defeated George Washington'
