Why and how do peasant and indigenous communities pass from social submission to a process of organisation? This question drove the making of Marta Rodriguez and Jorge Silva’s Campesinos, airing a masterful poetics of the portrait with Brechtian re-enactments of working conditions on colonial coffee plantations in 1970s Colombia. The documentary is at once a call to self-organisation and revolt, and a lucid analysis of indigenous struggle and the significance of land.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
