Marina Grzinic and Aina Smid

2003, 17:50 minutes, colour, Slovenian with English Subtitles


The Eastern house is a video that reread some key names and some keysequences from the film history: Antonioni (Blow-up), Coppola (Apocalypse Now), Don Siegel. As well it re-articulates the body and conceptualhappenings performed in the Eastern European context. The video is a homageto Nesa Paripovic happenings and body actions from the 1970s in Belgrade. The text is a political intervention in the field of theory regarding the question of global capitalism and the radical position of technology in the cyberworld with a clear reference to a cyberfeminst attitude and positioning. In this respect the question of sex and empathy in the cyberworld is raised as well as the ethical and political questioning of cloning and hybrid identities. As one of the key moment in the video is the re-reading of the Bush's USA war against Iraq, 2003.
