More Info Works / GET OUT OF MY HOUSE


Two men pose as terrorists. The video represents and repeats the videos terrorists often send for TV news and media. The men are assembling a Kalashnikov, they have another rifle on the floor. They seem to prepare for a violent attack. However, their defiant ritual doesn’t go as planned, as one of them turns to be very clumsy. The video discusses the forms of representation and questions the familiar pattern for covering the threath of violence in media.
