Paper Tiger Television, in cooperation with author and activist Anne Elizabeth Moore, presents a new thirty-minute documentary, Infiltrating the Underground: The Corporatization of Underground Culture, to air Wednesday, December 10th at 3 and 11 p.m. on Brooklyn Community Access Television, and at 8 p.m. on Manhattan Neighborhood Network. This video collaboration will look at how big business is chipping away at democracy through underground cultures—and how underground cultures willingly participate.
The program will examine how and why anti-corporate culture and independent media have been co-opted by corporate advertising and the profit-making agenda, examining instances where the government and big business collude to silence independent voices—and concerns for social justice. Copies of Infiltrating the Underground are available for purchase for classroom use or to air on local community access stations.
A follow-up to Moore’s 2007 New Press book, Unmarketable: Brandalism, Copyfighting, Mocketing, and the Erosion of Integrity, the video Infiltrating the Underground investigates what happens when the underground becomes just another market, and what independent artists and media makers can do about it. Paper Tiger Television’s 27-year history of provocative independent television and Anne Elizabeth Moore’s 23 years of independent print publishing combine in this compelling look at cultural production and economic censorship in this age of rampant branding.

Tape# 105 Hampshire College professor and stand-up theorist Joan Braderman takes on power and desire in TV's campiest series. "Joan Does Dynasty," a classic in feminist media deconstruction, is a hilarious look at the materialistic 80's in the context of the ordinary working person's life. Superimposing herself over portions of "Dynasty" and into the bedrooms, office suites and maids' quarters of the super rich, Braderman asks, "Why do 100 million people in 78 countries welcome this department store of dressed-to-kill aliens into their homes every week?" TRT: 28 minutes.
