Book of the week: "Fear: Trump in the White House", by Bob Woodward

“With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump’s White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files and documents. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One and the White House residence. Fear is the most intimate portrait of a sitting president ever published during the president’s first years in office.”

Exhibition: "Women and Dissent Dressing: Clothing as an Expression of Counterconduct"

“Women and Dissent Dressing is an exhibition created as a part of the course titles “Visual Archives of Violence”. The series of exhibits displaying recreated costumes worn by women in six movements (Black Panther Party protests, Pussyhat project, March against repression, the Green Wave, the Headscarf protests and the Handmaid’s Tale protests) offer an opportunity to extend conversations around visuality and violence to analyse acts of resistance. This is also an avenue to discuss the importance of group identities, symbolic clothing, and anonymity within protests and other acts of resistance. Join us to celebrate these brave women.”

The exhibition is taking place in Salon Davis, 13-20 December 2019.
