Political Recycling

video instalation (2013), 2013
Video installation Political recycling shows with a strong symbolical way the current status in a Slovenian space, when people in every day and public conversations question the necessity and ability of politicians. Author Valerie Wolf Gang sets the Slovenian Parliament in the toilet bowl, and indicates that this is more suitable place for this kind of political debate as general crisis is getting deeper. The author in a symbolic way also plays with the idea that newspapers and magazines are often read straight on the toilet seat, so it is actually recycled: over the eyes to the brain, and then quickly out through the anus. Then the flush of water follows which takes the political platitudes far away underground where they slowly rot. If all of that could be that easy.
