EAI presented a screening and talk with artist Liz Magic Laser. Laser's work in performance and video reverses the media's spotlight, shining a critical light on the people and methodologies working behind the scenes to construct persuasive statements, beliefs and political action. Laser's art asks questions about the use of public relations practices in business, politics and journalism.

Laser presented recent works that investigate the techniques and tropes of the news media, including the American premiere of her most recent video, Public Relations / Öffentlichkeitsarbeit (2013), in which she turns "man-on-the-street" interviews with the public into a new kind of critical theater.
