ISBN 978-0-9867810-6-3

This publication, produced in conjunction with Vtape's annual Curatorial Incubator titled What the F**k?1 Video in the Age of Sublime Uncertainty, finds Jim Drobnick and Jennifer Fisher creating a series based on the coined idea of a "crisis in democracy". This series responds to video's capability to focus on collective feeling in regard to moral scandals. The film chosen display affects that are resonant today, despite being created prior to the time they were screened in this series.
