Originally conceived as a project co-produced by the Whitney Museum and the American Center in Paris and aired on MTV, AMNESIA is a one-minute single-channel video that compresses with an economy of time and textual editing a direct assault on the languages of hate and intolerance. We hear spoken, "They spread disease. They smell bad. They take our jobs." The hate conveyed through the invectives (along with Europe’s fascist past) is a reminder of the collective hysteria that can always recur in the language and institution of racism and violence.

The copyright on this film could, sadly and obviously, be 2017 instead of 1992.

engaging with history in a direct way that wasn't pretentious, like an ethnographic survey of racism and jingoism. who is the real author of these voices?
