PICTURING POLITICS: T-Shirt Imperatives


There is just so much wrong with American Apparel issuing a t-shirt imperative to “Free Iran.” I am powerfully reminded of Michel Foucault’s thesis that the discourse of freedom is constantly produced through the practice of security, and of Inderpal Grewal’s remark that humanitarianism is the name of American empire’s condition of possibility. (Thanks, Golnar, for the creepy image.)
