Art History with Labor

The video draws on Luther’s 95 theses, which were written in 1577 to protest against the sale of indulgences in the Catholic Church. By nailing them onto the door of the Castle Church in Wittenburg, Germany, Luther exposed the greed and corruption of the men of his time. Art History with Labor serves the same purpose. With an abundance of references to popular culture, including youtube clips of Jerry Springer, excerpts from Fight Club, and quotes from Adorno, the video works satirically to reveal consumption and capitalist hierarchy as the cardinal sin of modern America in 95 separate points.
