I’m Protesting Against Myself

Ciprian Muresan, "I'm Protesting Against Myself", 2011.

The video I am protesting against myself presents a puppet in a garbage can citing numerous reasons why one should protest against it. Cyprian Mureşan utilizes the comic effects typical of popular culture and the media. Progressively during the video, one appropriates the reasons for this characters discontent. This work has particular resonance at the moment in the midst of globalization and Capitalist excesses, since indignant voices are rising.
The script was written in collaboration with Gianina Carbunariu, a contemporary Romanian author.
