untitled # 29.95
Untitled #29.95 is a video about video. It is a story about the 60s and early 70s when video was first used by artists and activists. It is a story about reproduction. It is a story about money and about public vs. private. And it is about who controls art. It is also a call to action.
Untitled #29.95 tells the history of the commercial art establishment’s attempt to turn video into an object like sculpture or painting in order to increase its value in the marketplace. Then in an act of cultural charity worthy of Robin Hood, Untitled #29.95 calls for high-priced limited edition videos to be “liberated” from commercial art galleries and given to the internet.
