BRANDING TERROR

Branding Terror explores the visual identity of the world’s major terrorist groups, analyzing the symbolism, colors and wording on logos and flags. The author Artur Beifuss will explain the idea behind the project and talk about the process of research he has gone through. He will give insights into what terrorism is and what it has in common with the western concept “branding”. Steven Heller will show the difference between the branding of “legitimate” versus “terrorist” entities as well as how so-called terrorist images are sometimes revivified as “legitimate.”
