Art & Protest on Frieze

Eva and Franco Mattes

We’ve been invited by Frieze magazine to contribute to this month issue: “How Important is Art as a Form of Protest?”. For our contribution we hired several, anonymous, crowdsourced workers through an online marketplace and asked them to protest in front of their webcams. We do not know who or where they are, and we couldn’t ultimately predict what would result from our request. We couldn’t disagree more with some of the protesters, particularly those sympathetic to the US president, and yet we could not ignore them. Maybe the internet itself has become a form of protest to preconceived ideas of class, public space and employment?
