Onderwerp: <videovortex> VideoChronic: Video Activism and Distribution in


EngageMedia and Kunci Cultural Studies Center are pleased to announce
the launch of Videochronic. This publication is the result of a
collaborative research project charting how activists are engaging with
video technologies in Indonesia, addressing some of the issues of
technology-mediated social movements, and exploring the potential and
limitations of online video distribution.

The past decade in Indonesia has seen a dramatic increase in the use of
video as a social change tool by community, campaign and activist
organisations. Access to the tools for producing and distributing video
have become increasingly democratised over this period.

But how are video activists taking to using new video distribution
technologies? Beyond the hype how are these tools being used on the
ground? This research explores how social change video work is currently
being distributed in Indonesia, from VCD to vodcasting, Creative Commons
to Copyright, and considers how are activists might approach
distribution in the future.

This 140 page book presents both English and Indonesian versions of the
research as well as colour illustrations including a visualisation of
the development of video activism and online video.

The research can be downloaded as PDF or hard copies may be ordered.
