Everybody Loves Nothing (Empathic Exercizes)

Steve Reinke

1996, 12:00 minutes, colour, English

TAPECODE 345.111

Completed while artist-in-residence at Video In. Reinke uses archival footage from the Prelinger Archives - films on the integration of psychiatric wards into general hospitals, dermatology, testosterone pellet implantation, various newsreels and home movies from the 30's & 40's - to construct seven discrete but interlocked "exercizes" which posit various relationships between author/audience and the subjects in the footage.
