New video: Video Graffiti: Lobo-Motivas


Using footage sampled from the opening sequence of a 1977 Brazilian soap opera, Video Graffiti is a symbolic gesture of cultural re-appropriation. The video consists of the author 'graffiting' his name on top of the credits that appear in the sequence as an act of 'vandalism' against Brazil's controlling Globo Network and the powerful cultural colonization imposed by the organisation on the making of the country's collective memory.
