Social Screenings: Ways of Seeing (part 3 & 4) (1972)

Berger offers a master-class in how to interpret images through a historical materialist lens. Famously, he did so in an extremely accessible, enjoyable way; for Berger, being able to expose the ideologies and the history of class struggles which shape ideology was a practical tool, and one that had to be available to the masses if it is to serve them.

We will watch episodes 1 & 2 which are each 30 minutes long.

  • Episode 3: Oil pantings and status
  • Episode 4: Photography, publicity and advertising

The episodes will be screened in English, with English subtitles. There will be an informal discussion after the episodes
