Presenting four new films by renowned Dutch artist Aernout Mik focusing on the distribution of power. 'Raw Footage' (2006)uses previously unseen material from ITN's archives, 'Scapegoats' (2006) recalls the aftermath of responses to such recent disasters as the New Orleans floods, 'Training Ground' (2006) is a simulation of a police training arena and 'Vacuum Room' (2005) shows scenes from a political assembly disrupted by a group of young protestors. Intrigued by social dynamics and how people behave in groups, Mik manipulates the audience’s experience of the films by changing their physical relationships to the screens.

... the raw footage part was the best part of this show. Unaired original news footage, mainly from the Yugoslavian War. It's hard to distinguish it from the fictive work he usually does which makes it really creepy.Report this opinion as offensive
