this is the problem.

“MONTREAL – Merchants and residents of the Gay Village went to Montreal city hall on Monday night to present a letter and a petition to the mayor.”

“…to do something about the number of homeless, derelict and dangerous people who have made the Village home.”

Sask. needs to face racism

“If he were non-aboriginal, clean-shaven and better dressed, would people have listened and made the call?” she asks. “If just one person had listened and taken the chance to make the phone call, could his friend have been saved?”

Charges not advised in police tasering of 11-year-old

“A Prince George Mountie who tasered an 11-year-old first nations boy should not face criminal charges for his conduct, says an external review by West Vancouver Police Department that left a native organization ‘dumbfounded’ for its brevity.”

About workequalsworthequalsinnocence

Working with animation, video, painting, drawing, installation and intervention, my interdisciplinary practice examines the complex position of culture within neoliberal capitalism and critiques modes of social control, while exploring the potential for art to function as a site of resistance. I am specifically interested in how modes of violence are perpetuated collectively through popular narratives, concepts of justice and denial of accountability. Frequently engaging with communities and collectives, my practice eschews individual authorship in favour of collaboration. This has included an ongoing commitment to working with women and youth who are in conflict with the law, through the creation of art projects in prisons as well as at numerous centres that support marginalized people. In 2008, I completed an MFA through the Public Art and New Artistic Strategies program at the Bauhaus University (Weimar, Germany). My work has been shown nationally and internationally in festivals, screenings, artist run centres and museums. I am currently employed as an Assistant Professor of Studio Arts at Concordia University. http://jessicamaccormackrmack.tumblr.com/
