Rebel Karaoke: Ivan Brazhkin
The installation confronts politics with entertainment.
Within the context of ART NOU, Adn Galería presents the artwork: "Rebel Karaoke" (2011) by the Russian artist Ivan Brazhkin (1985, Russia). The project is a video installation showing recent political and social demonstrations, protests and strikes in Russia and all over the world all recorded as karaoke. The installation is based on a projection of footage and a microphone for the public use. The installation confronts politics with entertainment: spectators get the chance to “take part”, in solidarity with the demands made during events they were never involved in, and can blend in with the crowd of demonstrators and assume a political identity
