Why should only wealthy people have access to the important ideas in art?
"Untitled #29.95" is a video about video. It is a story about the 60s when
video was first used by artists and activists. It is a story about
reproduction. It is a story about money and about public vs. private. And
it is about who controls art.
It is also a call to action.
"Untitled #29.95" tells the history of the commercial art establishment's
attempt to turn video into an object like sculpture or painting in order to
increase its value in the marketplace.
Then, in an act of cultural charity worthy of Robin Hood, "Untitled #29.95"
calls for high-priced limited edition videos to be "liberated" from
commercial art galleries and given to the internet.
Share the ware.
"Untitled #29.95" is in several video festivals across the world, thus earning considerable cultural returns for project investors. Here is one article (among many) about this endeavour.
