The Art of Occupation, Part II

This is a follow-up to a post written in November, The Art of Occupation, which dealt with the inception of Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Museums, as well as their artistic components. In this post I continue by reporting on the art and activities of the movements’ participants as they evolve and expand. - Nadiah Fellah, San Francisco contributor

The Art of Occupation

As the Occupy movement continues to grow, the lines between ‘artist’ and ‘activist’ have become increasingly blurred. Images, text, video and photographs convey the messages and events of the movement on every available surface, website, blog, and twitter feed. In fact, as Martha Schwendener recently noted, Liberty Plaza, or any occupation site for that matter, has “became a kind of art object: a living installation or social sculpture.”  - Nadiah Fellah, SF Contributor
