What Makes a Revolution a Revolution?


How do you measure change after a revolution? What makes a revolution a revolution? This animation provides an overview of significant revolutions that have taken place within the Middle East region, inviting you to consider the role of media in framing these struggles, and whether significant progress towards change has been achieved.

This and other animation included in the exhibition From Visionaries to Vloggers (spring 2020) were commissioned by the museum to introduce different media platforms and issues discussed in the exhibition. The museum worked with animation company Cognitive to create short and informative explanations of the platforms, from which further exploration of the accompanying displayed historical material and interviews could flow.
