Hito Steyerl: Strike
Thursday–Saturday | Dusk–11:00pm
Everson Community Plaza
Light Work is pleased to present Strike (2010) by world-renowned artist Hito Steyerl, whose acclaimed work explores late capitalism’s social, cultural, and financial imaginaries. This super-short, deadpan video sits squarely in the tradition of Fluxus performance and wordplay, a simple but (literally) impactful gesture. In Strike, a monitor is smashed to reveal the outline of its matrix — in the artist’s words, “A sculptural take on what it can mean to take a look backstage.”
