Dread Scott Artist Talk: Imagine a World without America

Using examples of his work from the past 25 years, including A Man Was Lynched by Police Yesterday, which is featured in Dimensions of Black, Dread Scott discusses his career as a multimedia artist and activist. Imagining a world free of oppression and exploitation, Scott’s work addresses themes of American identity and patriotism, American democracy’s roots in slavery and its present role, the criminalization of Black and Latino youth, and connections between the 1960s Civil Rights and current Black Lives Matter movements. As the artist writes, “Billions are excluded from intellectual development and full participation in society. We don’t have to live this way and I make art as part of forging a radically different world.”
