Sweet Repression of Ideology

2000

Medium: performance, video documentation, DVD video
Duration: 6:35 min.


By giving the art a form of social complaint, I am trying to show the invisible, unformed and forbidden layers of social and psychological collisions. The crazy constructions of fanaticism and fundamentalism are very often built on these layers.

The revolutionary reconstruction of the agricultural-stockbreeding culture, industrial modernization cause hysteric-insane outbursts. We witness similar conflicts when the religious- philosophic national ideology "tending to the center" bumps into "the body truth".
