Can jokes bring down governments? — editorial

“Can jokes bring down governments?” is a text by Metahaven where they go about the power of the mainstream culture of Memes, and the impacts they end up having in more serious contexts.

The idea that triggered the concept and following graphic decisions was the act of writing with red ink on white paper, which is seen as a daring move, with the use of red paper.

This was an interesting way of exploring how simple graphic choices are interpreted by a biased society.
