Amalia Ulman (ES/AR 2018, 8:00min)

Amalia Ulman’s work addresses fluid identities in the post- digital era when sincerity can be both authentic and ironic. AGENDA is a staged lecture comprising a powerpoint presentation, live performance and sound effects. The video narrates the storyline Privilege– an online Instagram performance by Ulman – from a behind-the-scenes vantage point. AGENDA’s dreamlike storyline later develops into a series of cons and scams, economies of appearances and the rise and fall of Bob The Pigeon, an ode to a working class hero which finishes with pessimistic spiritual notes that the author recognizes as selfish, recognizing the entitlement of her nihilism, escapism and ability to complain to carry its own privilege.
