A Crime Against Art
We could not help but notice the recent proliferation of mock trials in NY. In keeping with this development, we invite you to join us for a screening and discussion of A Crime Against Art (2007), by Hila Peleg.
A Crime Against Art is a film based on the trial staged at an art fair in Madrid in February 2007 by Anton Vidokle and Tirdad Zolghadr. Inspired by the mock trials organized by André Breton in the 1920s and 30s, it playfully raises a number of polemical issues in the world of contemporary art: collusion with the “new bourgeoisie,” instrumentalization of art and its institutions, the future possibility of artistic agency, as well as other pertinent topics.
