Exit Through the Gift Shop is critical of how our culture values and judges artwork because of the degree to which expectations and others’ beliefs manipulate our interpretations of reality. The documentary demonstrates this phenomenon concerning art, but it also applies to all subjective experiences. Through Thierry’s opening gallery Life is Beautiful, Exit Through the Gift Shop shows how expectations and conformity manipulate our experiences.

After watching 13th it didn't make me upset at all, it made me very sorrowful, to see some of the things that African Americans had to go through. I wonder how it would feel to be kidnapped and brought to another country, to be enslaved and then freed to only be, enslaved in a different way. Know that I have watched this documentary it oped my eyes on why things are how they are know. Everything that they said in the documentary was linked together one way or another, it’s like putting together a puzzle with a lot of pieces. One thing that really stuck with me from the documentary was when they were saying that, a lot of the african american leaders around the 1960 were either killed, imprisoned or fled the country and that's why there is not a lot of African American civil right leaders, because maybe people seen what happened to the civil right activist and didn't want the same thing to happen to them. After all I don’t blame them I would want to play it safe to. On the other hand I don’t feel
The documentary Hearts and Minds was interesting and eye opening for me as it was the first in-depth visual of the Vietnam Era and of the war itself. After watching the movie, and thinking about it without the initial emotional impact, I realized a few things that the director was trying to prove to the audience. Generally, I thought that the film was biased towards one side. It showed almost no pro-war people except the POW and a few politicians. However, the framing the director used made them look like fanatics or cold-hearted racists. Granted, the human pain they showed on both sides was real and could not have been exaggerated. It was eye opening to see just how wrong the U.S. was to enter into Vietnam. The documentary made it seem like
The use of technology has catalyzed society into an era that is increasingly interconnected yet impersonal at the same time. Despite technology’s endless list of assets, many fail to acknowledge its shortcomings when mentioning what is lost as a result of using it. Although in “Great to Watch” by Maggie Nelson, she is not afraid to share her skepticism of technology, as well as the role it plays in desensitizing individuals on a day-to-day basis. The internet is an invaluable resource to many because it is a public domain for sharing ideas, opinions, and knowledge that any and everyone can have access to. In a sense, it does not restrict what someone may see or do, and this can either be a good thing or a bad thing. The booming use of new media
“In contrast to government-commissioned public art, street art is illicit and subversive in nature. Therefore, most street artists, including Banksy, use pseudonyms to avoid legal prosecution for vandalism.”(Chung 27) Banksy’s street art does not focus on competing with rival artists, but focuses on engaging with a broader audience in a deeper level. He provokes his audience by deeply expressing out various social practices that helps viewers to reflect and confront certain aspects together as a community. (27) The underlying message of Banksy’s art can lead towards an active involvement of street art within the community.
The essential question I will focus on in this CREQ is “What do societies want from their schools?” The use of societies in this essential question is somewhat broad, so I am primarily going to discuss what the dominant society in the United States wants from their schools. The United States wants higher standardized test scores and lower drop-out rates; our ranking in comparison to other countries is embarrassing. However, the dominant society does not want schools to actually educate their students if it doesn’t fit the dominant perspective. This is exemplified by the documentary, Precious Knowledge, in which ethnic studies programs were deemed un-American and banned. Additionally, abstinence-only education and evolution vs. creation theory
Banksy, a street artist whose identity remains unknown is believed to have been born in Bristol, England, around 1974. He rose to prominence for his provocative stenciled pieces in the late 1990s. Banksy is the subject of a 2010 documentary, Exit Through the Gift Shop, which examines the relationship between commercial and street art. Banksy's artwork is characterized by striking images, often combined with slogans. His work often engages political themes, satirically critiquing war, capitalism, hypocrisy and greed. Common subjects include rats, apes, policemen, members of the royal family, and children. In addition to his two-dimensional work, Banksy is known for his installation artwork. Other pieces have drawn attention for their edgy themes or the boldness of their execution. Banksy's worldwide fame has transformed his artwork from acts of vandalism to sought-after high art pieces. Banksy's identity remains unknown, despite intense speculation. The two names most often suggested are Robert Banks and Robin Gunningham. Pictures that surfaced of a man who was supposedly Banksy pointed toward Gunningham, an artist who was born in Bristol in 1973. Gunningham moved to London around 2000, a timeline that correlates with the progression of Banksy's
The documentary, The Good Fight, captures the many struggles and sacrifices James Farmer faced during the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. Through first hand accounts, pictures, and documents, this film brings James Farmer to life portraying him as a selfless, committed, and collaborative leader dedicated to the movement. James Farmer experienced segregation from a young age and knew at that point that he must actively do something to put an end to it. He strongly believed in changing something that is wrong rather than just passively accommodating to the world.
“Adveristements featuring sex, implied domination, and sometimes explicit bondage appears as often in women’s magazines as those aimed at men. From roadside billboards to prime time television, gratuitous bikini clad beauties ornamenting product slogan sustain society’s perception of women as secondary decorative, and expendable”. (Reading 74). When I was reading, reading 74 by Martha Burk and Kristen Shaw, this sentence stood out to me the most because it took me back to a time when I was watching a documentary called “The Lost Boys”, which was about immigrant boys from Darfur Sudan who were migrating to the U.S. and how they were dealing with being in different world apart from theirs and the huge difference there was between their world
