Logocentric revolution

The meeting is part of the cycle "Performance of protest"

In the period 1980-1981 and in the following years marked by the constant social confrontation, protests against the authorities adopted innumerable forms, in which, however, the basic elements still remained the word – catchphrase, slogan, literary work, tag, typographic form, new narrative, spoken history. Paper ammo and a discursive offensive constituted the main strategy of resistance and protest from the moment of formulating 21 postulates were made, to broadcasts of the underground radio and the entire culture of the second circulation. The extremely logocentric revolution of Solidarity manifested, perhaps for the last time in history, a true faith in the word and its performative power. Mentioning that carnival, however, it is worth asking about the modern ways of solidarity and resisting state violence.
