How to Forget What You Gave Away

How To Forget What You Gave Away

Designed with scrolled, calligraphic script, Miranda Maher’s poster How To Forget What You Gave Away satirically mimics the United States’ Declaration of Independence. With witty, subversive statements like “Don’t wonder what happened to our independent, truth seeking media. (Troublemakers!)” and “Enjoy the increasing power of the corporate wealthy (Pretend you’re one of them),” Maher cleverly suggests that the mass amnesia plaguing our homes was, if not enthusiastically, then passively, embraced, making change all the more difficult.

Brooklyn, 2010.
