The Broadcast Episodes

The Broadcast one-minute episodes (2020) are an extension of the larger The Broadcast project, created for The MSU Broad Museum of Art in 2019. The Broadcast explores the production, performance and intersection of dominant fictions, our collective imagination and lived realities.These short episodes combine performances and interviews with the group of young project participants with archival TV footage and current media coverage  and function as commentary on our current media landscape and ideas of 'truth', 'authenticity' and 'reality'. These episodes were first posted on instagram.
