Higher education

Higher Education is an essay video about art education. The work makes use of autobiographical elements that it simultaneously places in doubt. A disembodied voice reflects on the social dynamics of an institution while actors standing in for the artist hold stilted poses. The artist makes a direct visual comparison between himself and historical representations of martyrs.
