In September 2012, as part of the one-year anniversary of Occupy Wall street, Nina Berman teamed up with the electronic band from New Zealand Minuit to produce this clip. The images were taken during the time that Occupy was in Manhattan (Sep-Nov 2011) and in Chicago (May 2012).
Occupy Wall Street is a protest movement that began on September 17, 2011 in Zuccotti Park – located in New York City’s Wall Street financial district – against corporate influence and income inequality. Monitored and at times harassed by the police, initially ignored by the major press, the movement expanded rapidly with support from labor, anti war groups, and intellectuals.
Similar encampments have formed all over the United States and across Europe.
