The Plot Thickens…

This series of short videos is dedicated to the critical spirit in all of us. Whether it is a questioning of the notion of an objective reality (in `Dialogue’) and an instrumental language (in `Table, table and …) or an appreciation of how the media reproduce dominant relations of power in our culture, the attempt is to facilitate a rethinking of our relationship to the world around us. `Ideological Baggage’ explores the construction of gender in a television commercial while `Packaged Desire’ examines the modus operandi of advertising. `The Phantom Country’, `The Myth of Columbus’ and `A Taste of Fascism’ deal with various aspects of racism in the media.
