- Round 12
Off the Wall/Talking Murals
Art Forces uses community public art and technology; murals, websites, social and new media, to inspire critical thinking and action. Art Forces' projects make visible histories and relationships that have been obliterated and forgotten, making connections between local and global issues of social justice, borders, precarity, migrations, and decolonization.
Off the Wall/Talking Murals reveals multilayered information about the historic, cultural and social context in which Bay Area murals have been produced. Technology turns mural images into portals of multimedia information amplifying the murals' themes, moving from the site-specific/local to the global.
