This is good. While "critical making" here is focusing on product design mostly, the concept can be extended to visual communication. Relevant to what we do: http://current.ecuad.ca/what-is-critical-making

Addiction as the driving model of Facebook: http://nyti.ms/1N6K0rO

See here our festival outlines:

Capitalisms business models are based on addiction. New clothes, new technology, permanently new and innovative strategies in institutions, new cars, new mobile phones new this and that, are what we can see everyday. And our addictions rising- just think of our addiction from screens and social media and the internet- the perfect complementary drug to the pharmaceuticals- the legal drug of choice- creating an atmosphere, but never demanding, or even destroying – focus or attention. While “expanding horizons”, “exploring consciousness” and "hedonism" used to be a quality of drugs, pharmaceuticals are correctives, ironing out inappropriate behaviour. No wonder the drugged masses like to do the “right thing”. Little pleasure the pharmaceuticals give us, we must add as well.

The Boston Globe recently published a fake cover imagining a time when Donald Trump would be president. The first major daily doing it as the Yes Men did it with their fake New York times - although this was an art project. Art imitates life imitates art imitating life....Here more: http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/apr/10/trump-president-boston-globe-predicts-news-fake-front-page

Part of this years Memefest PLEASURE outlines is devoted to the Pleasure of Hospitality (and being human). Here a wonderful short film about conversations between refugees and tourists on the Greek Island Lesbos:

Memefest 2016 Festival theme: PLEASURE


The pleasure of drugs:

At the time, I was writing a book about the politics of drug prohibition. I started to ask Ehrlichman a series of earnest, wonky questions that he impatiently waved away. “You want to know what this was really all about?” he asked with the bluntness of a man who, after public disgrace and a stretch in federal prison, had little left to protect. “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”
