News Papers

Buy the two biggest news papers in the country you live in.

Get 2 copies of each and pin each individual spread on the wall. You need 2 copies, so you can see all the graphic information at once for that day. 

It is astonishing how much and how bizarre the imagery presents itself in front of your eyes, when you have the possibility to scrutinize it as one big chunk of information in full size.

Point out the similarities and differences and initiate a general discussion of the power of imagery.

What central narratives and themes are there in the public’s eyes in our times?
