LX 2.0: MTAA - Our Political Work

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.
-- George Orwell

Continuing a series of computer-driven self-portraits, MTAA's "Our Political Work" presents the artists in a never-ending state of screaming, yelling, waiting and sometimes laughing. Using 141 filmed moments, custom software randomly selects and joins video clips into a seemingly endless array of undignified action. Begun in 2007 and completed in 2008, "Our Political Work" creates an open-ended depiction of political discourse as Beckett-like action.
