§240.15 | 2018
< >
§240.15 is a multi-screen video installation that presents texts of the legislation of the State of New York used to define radical forms of dissidence: riot, inciting to riot, unlawful assembly, criminal anarchy, and disorderly conduct. The texts are presented using a clear advertising aesthetic on colorful screens that change very fast making the text difficult to read. The words are interrupted by the synchronized appearance on all the screens of highly stylized images of riots and police control that were taken in Bogota in demonstrations against the imposition of new local legislation based on the implementation of international economic treaties. §240.15 questions the real possibility of creating local legislation to prioritise local issues in the current globalized context.
