je passe mon oral d'anglais bientôt, du coup j'aurais bien aimé que quelqu’un puisse y jeter un petit coup d'oeil si possible!
I’m going to talk about the notion places and forms of power. First of all I would like to give a definition of this notion. In politics and in society, power is the ability to influence people. It’s also a way to show their power over a population or a place. It exists in the form of laws, which are set up and must be respected. However, it can also lead to conflicts and tensions. For instance counter-power practiced by people. Many people use the art as way of expression. It is for this reason we can wonder:
How is possible to denounce and fight discrimination including segregation through art?
I will study this question along two lines: first, I will give a short presentation of the context and secondly I will show how the art can be good way to do paste a message.
After the Civil War, in the Southern states, racial laws were enforced and segregation, separation between black and white people, extended to public places and became more important. A group of withe people practice a pressure on black. They reduce their rights. As a result, we can see the presence of power in the Afro-Americans society.
The art is an important way to act out (show, enunciate?) a problem or denounce something. The segregation begins with a separation of whites and blacks in the daily life. On the waters fountains photography by Elliott Erwit we can see this separation, one reserved for whites’ people and one other for blacks.
This difference between the quality of the waters fountains shows that whites people are overpower. This photography it is a means to denounce a tragic scene but plain in 1950. Thanks to this picture, Elliott Erwit shocked the public opinion and shouted some black people to revolt as Rosa parks.
Allen Parker also uses this picture in the movie Mississippi Burning 1988. In this movie, we can observe that it exists a group like a terrorist organisation, the KKK, organized in the goal to restore white supremacy. For that, they used forms of violence like lynching to terrorize the African American people. We can see through these laws the power practised by a part of the population in order to be thought of as being superior.
