Dissent by design : anti-olympic action in East Asia / by Jilly Traganou

Traganou, Jilly

This chapter looks at established and novel repertoires of contention that emerge from a conscious and deliberate engagement with materiality in the domain of anti-Olympic action across East Asia. They include acts of proto-design for political struggle and survival, the design of subversive posters and anti-campaigns, and the assembling of various material resources that combine design with performance indirect socio-technical action in public space. They are the results of work by non-expert designers(everyday people who find themselves being disenfranchised through the enforcement of the requirements of the Olympic City), professional designers or advertisers who are part of anti-Olympic movements, and anti-Olympic collectives that bring together the capacities of activists, "creatives," and the disenfranchised
