This project investigates how the hacktivist-group Anonymous, through visual and verbal means, communicates their purpose. Specifically, the project will look at the “#OpIceISIS” video, which is a part of the operation “Ice ISIS”, which was launched in January 2015. The analysis will be conducted on the basis of the theorists Robert T. Craig, George Gerbner, Stuart Hall and Roland Barthes. While Craig and Gerbner offers a broad theoretical understanding of the field of Communication as a whole, Hall and Barthes provides the tools for analysis. Furthermore, the paper will take on a handful of discussion points such as symbolism of the Guy Fawkes-mask that Anonymous uses in their video and the identity, purpose and ideal of the organization. The project will conclude that Anonymous communicate their message in the “#OpIceISIS” video using visual and verbal means containing relations to already existing signs.
