Word on the street

Talking about a revolution sounds like a whisper at Bucharest’s Centre of Visual IntrospectionAt night, passers-by along Bucharest’s Strada Biserica Enei near the Novotel Hotel are being accosted by subversive anti-capitalist propaganda, preaching an end to the empty rhetoric of philosophers and encouraging permanent revolution for the oppressed mass

June 2009 - From the Print Edition

This is thanks to Irish artist Jesse Jones, who has trained a choir of Romanian hipsters to whisper Marx and Engels’ Communist Manifesto in a recording which took place outside the Mausoleum to Communist Heroes in Bucharest’s Carol Park – and is pictured here (below left).
Causing every bourgeoisie to tremble in his Hush Puppies, this sound installation is now being pumped out at a low level to pedestrians walking past Romania’s audio-visual installation gallery, the Centre for Visual Introspection.
Part of ‘I Have Doubts’, a video installation at the mini-gallery in the city centre, this includes work by Jones and Declan Clarke and is curated by local iconoclast Stefan Tiron. The works on display use the surreal and symbolic to take a big swipe at the conventional wisdom of neo-liberalism – as though it wasn’t hurting enough already. ■
