VOIGTH-KAMPFF


2013-2017. Participatory situation, videoinstallation.


Description and concept

The Project is based on a procedure that allows measuring the involuntary ocular changes that happen in a group of people, determined according to categories that correspond with the “Ideological Apparatus of State” (Louis Althusser) used by the Cuban Government. The people are submitted to questions that “stress-test” the normal values in order to determinate, how much they reproduce the ideal behaviors internalized by the ideological apparatus.
