ORCHESTRATED FREEDOM

08.07. - 27.08.2016

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orchestrated Freedom is new cinematic installation by the collective Wasis.Today.

 

In this theatrical use of video, photography and sculptural objects, Wasis.Today challenges manufactured mono-aesthetics and the consent that drives and hybridizes our bodies. Labor, time and technology are choreographed to each play a role in the engineered conception of modern paradises that hang like ersatz goods for our bodies to chase.
