Luzinterruptus - Politiker unter Beobachtung

"Políticos bajo videovigilancia" - "Politicians under surveillance". Eine Installation der spanischen Gruppe Luzinterruptus. Am 19. November 2011 wurden in Madrid 75 nachgebaute Überwachungskameras installiert, die Wahlplakate mit Politikern ins Visier nehmen. Die gesamte Aktion wurde in nur 4 Stunden durchgeführt.

Luzinterruptus: "Politicians are under suspicion, not only by the citizens that we see as being astonished by their manouevers to curb a crisis for which they do not stop trying to put the blame on us.

But in reality, those that truly keep them under strict surveillance, are the markets, loaded with unlimited power which allows them to overthrow legitimate governments, imposing in their place a race of technocrats of suspect past, in the service of the crisis.

Thinking about these things, we took to the streets of Madrid, on the 19th of November, a day of reflection before the general elections, in order to present a simulation of the surveillance of politicians, with the aim of generating debate or simply a thought among the people who strolled through the streets on their way back home.

For our installation Politicians under video surveillance, we carried 75 fake security cameras with us, of the type which detect movement and possess an intermittent red light and we trained them on the advertising used by the parties in their electoral campaigns, observing from close up the faces that were touched up for the photos, of the politicians elect."
