Abstract

In this paper, the author examines the mobilization and regulation of toxic xenophobia in the post-September 11th era. The graphic posters from the far-right, anti-immigration Swiss UDC party are examined along with artistic responses to this graphic xenophobia. The paper argues that using the visual forms of xenophobia and the artistic responses as the basis for critical visual analysis in the public school curriculum could lead to an important site of struggle against the rise of toxic xenophobia and the "neutral" presentation of 9/11 found within textbooks and curriculum created by mainstream educational companies.
