Multi channel video installation / 2016 / 11'00'' / 16:9 / HD-video / color / stereo

Resistance is a representation of solidarity, revolution and drumming as a form of activism. The drumming group playing on the video is part of a global drumming network Rhythms of Resistance that supports everyone struggling against exploitation, discrimination and oppression. The different groups play samba music in different demonstrations and direct actions all over the world. As artists our work is based on the same values and we believe that contemporary art is an important part of the resistance against fascism and right-wing nationalism.

The work can be installed as a 3-channel version or as a round 6-channel version.

The work is a collaboration between Jemina Lindholm and Hinni Huttunen.
