In his video series called The Most Effective Way to Cover Up a Lie Gutiérrez analyses and discusses the common discourses within contemporary art practice as part of the mass media demagogy. His series of short experimental videos and photo documentation will be a criticism of consumerism, globalization, immigration, surveillance and the abuse of war as well as the limits of the human condition and the cacophony and corruption of power. His strategy is to propose teenage utopias while making an in-depth analysis of reality.
