Occupy 192

Installation and Videoart | 2011-14

A house condemned for demolition was the starting point for a collective artistic intervention. Each artist chose a part of the house and performed the action that the place and the conditions of the moment inspired. The house was opened to the public in May 2011 and ended up being demolished months later, as planned. The intervention was called Occupy 192.

A video piece was created from the photographic and videographic material produced by the artists during the action, being at the same time document and artwork itself, only testimony of what happened. The video also brings the artists' testimonyes, including a visit to the ruins of the house, reflecting on their individual creative processes in dialogue with the colective context.
