Different Systems of Chaos

Steven Eastwood and Anya Lewin

2003, 27:40 minutes, colour, English/Lithuanian


This playful examination of the role of bureaucracy in education and art was shot during a four-day collaborative performance at the Alytaus Dailes Mokykla art school in Lithuania. Over the duration the Director of the school (artist Redas Dirzys) performed as the Director of the school, the teachers portrayed teachers, the students acted as students and two visitors with video cameras played the role of the BBC. It is a film about the artist versus the administrator, about Soviet and post-Soviet Eastern Europe and the inherent manipulation of the documentary format.�
