agent-provocoteur.ch: sexy-swiss undies? nah!

no no. agent-provocateur.ch nothing to do with sexy undies by a company called agent provocateur.

agent-provocateur.ch is an art-project by martin heller, johannes gees and juri steiner. all of them expo.02 vets. yup. this is how they describe their project on the website:

agent-provocateur.ch is an independent “non-profit” project for the production and distribution of video-spots of Swiss cultural activists that deal with contemporary social and political issues. The spots are between 30-90 seconds of length and can be shown in television, on public video screens, in cinemas and on websites.

i quite like gedicht für eine stadt by jürg halter, aka mc kutti, who asked a chinese tourist visting zytglogge in bern to read one of his poems.
30 sekunden schweiz by chris niemeyer and hc vogel puts pricetags on cars driving by a street in zurich and adds it up: 998 015.- swiss francs in cars in 30 sec.
but the true killer application so far is carla lia monti’s wilhelm tell: fast-cut, delirious, cite-des-enfants-perdus-esque. let this woman make a feature film already!

but uhm what does a police band playing samba bati have to do with europe? and mike müllers entry… nah. now words wasted on shit.

but it looks promising. keep them filmsies coming…
